I’m currently on General Build - Low Volume after an increase of 7% in FTP to 255.
I’m finding I’m failing or having to dial down the Anaerobic workouts to get through but I can handle the Threshold workouts without failure or dialing back the percentage. I substitute the weekend workouts for a Saturday group ride and Sunday hills ride.
My goals for the next few months are a (B event) 136km - 1,500m road ride and a (A event) 125km - 3,000m MTB ride.
I will be finishing General Build - Low Volume before the road ride and moving on to the Century - Low Volume to work towards the MTB ride (well, that’s the plan).
Should I be focusing more on Anaerobic workouts to build the required VO2, concentrate more on the Threshold workouts or just keep doing what I’m doing and the Anaerobic will build?
Any thoughts are appreciated.
