Hi all. I’m a first time poster, but I’ve looked ahead at my training plan (which I’ve had to rejig a few times due to races being cancelled and rescheduled etc.)
I spotted what I’m worried might be a problem …
I’m at the end of week 6 (short power build low volume). And my cyclocross a-race is at the end of November on the 28th.
My schedule over the next 4 weeks looks like this:
Week 1: final week short power build
Week 2: Recovery week
Week 3: Taper
Week 2; Taper + A race
My question is this: Is this too much recovery ahead of my cx a race? Will my loss in fitness outweigh my freshness? Or is this absolutely acceptable?
Should I adjust this? And if so, how? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
