After my collarbone operation back in August 2018 I took a break and started stuctured training for first time and very soon, in September. I did SSB MV I, II and repeated II. Weather was improving so Sustained Power Build was 3-4 workouts indoor and Sunday free ride (Big TSS long ride). Climbing Speciality only 3 workout inside (one was Pettit, so, 2)
I ended adding a lot of volume with my free rides, I also did some Basin +1 workouts outside. After A event in July, I forgot about intervals and TR.
Power records of 1h, 20min and 15 min were set in March and May but until July I didn’t started to feel in a fall. Today I have only like 10% less FTP and ~15% less 10 min power, I’ve had some bad muscular response a few rides ago and psychologically I feel tired of the road bike, I need a break.
The problem is I don’t want to lose fitness but I don’t want to start base too soon like last year. Until december I wouldn’t like to start SSB. I’d like to lift, ski and run, but I might loose even more fitness in 4 months.
Maybe adquiere a MTB and combine it with running? Do a weekly roadbike ride after the break? Which zone focus? z2?
