Hello all, apologize for any redundancy, I’ve read through a few similar topics however just wanted to get some current opinions. Just finished a full cycle of SSBMV1/2 and GBMV. Experienced my largest FTP gain after SSB2 (beginning of build), smaller gain after the first build block, ramp test completed yesterday and FTP remained exactly the same and by exactly I mean exactly to the number. I took an extra week off after completing build to just ride, needed a break from the structure and I was a little beat to be honest.
My thoughts were to go back to SSBMV1 and not continue with specialty since I am not training for anything specific and then go into the Sustained Power Build. My concern is the lower TSS associated with phase 1 of base as well as no V02 efforts. I guess this brings me to my question, would there be any issue with increasing the TSS during this phase? Increasing the length of the Wednesday endurance ride, doing a + version on a weekend workout, incorporating a V02 workout etc. Or just roll with it and complete the plan as intended.
Appreciate any feedback, thanks all.
