New to TR and indoor training, completed SSB1Mv and am almost done with SSB2Lv. I’ve had to drop intensity in each of the last 6 workouts (and opted for 60 min over the 2 prescribed 90 min). I’m good until ~43 minute mark or so, and then cadence drops, so I drop intensity. I’m rested and look forward to the rides. I planned to move to Sustained Build LV after next week, but I wonder what to change for the next step per the need to drop intensity.
My training goals are for century rides starting next spring, ranging 3k - 7k elevation changes. I did LSD training for events the last 2 years, so the TR program is much different for me. I intended to roll through the SSB1, SSB2, SB, Century plans.
I think I should reduce my FTP by a few points and repeat SSB2Lv again - or maybe just the last 2 weeks of it to finish ‘as intended’. Perhaps dropping FTP and doing SBlv is similar that way? I imagine that even if my ramp tests suggest I’ve improved, my adaptation to this training is taking longer than the prescribed plan?
Advice from your experience? Thank you!
