Last year was a complete failure for me regards fitness, so I’m trying to give this year some structure. 2 years ago I did the whole Base, Build , Speciality thing and it worked very well, but I over cooked the summer rides. Last year a combination of illness, work and an accident really knocked my enthusiasm and any sort of structured workout and after an initial Base/Build, it all got a bit messy and fell apart. Trying to do better this year.
TR’s Base, Build and Speciality come to 28 weeks. Typically starting in winter and (AFAIKS) giving you 6-8 weeks of peak fitness the summer.
So what next?
Focus on weaknesses, take a break, just get out and cycle, start plan x,y,z? Take it easy for X weeks and circle on Base until next year?
I get the look of the TSS ramps generally having a long shallow slope and short recovery, does the same thing apply generally over a year with two overall slopes and short recovery periods?
