I have a ‘B’ event (hilly roads) in 10 days time. Due first to surgery, then winter weather etc, almost all of my prep (training) has been TR turbo-based, which was the plan, and it’s gone pretty well and I feel good [NB nice work, TR]. My FTP is higher now than prior to my late-summer surgery, so I’m not complaining.
I’ve only managed to do a handful of outside rides since the summer surgery, all in the past month. The event will entail a ride-time and likely TSS of roughly twice that of the longest/hardest of those recent rides.
I’m nearly halfway through Sustained Power Build, with just Galena +1 to do this week before starting the mid-plan recovery week.
In order to ensure I’m fully rested prior to the event (bearing in mind the big bump in the event’s ride time vs my recent rides), I’d planned to do just the scheduled Pettit and Collins w/o’s next week, skipping the final scheduled w/o Brasstown, leaving two rest days between Collins and the event.
Does this sound reasonable?
Or should I do something different next week, maybe slotting in something like Truuli -2 as a primer?
