I would love a workout program more suitable for my needs and age (66) so I need some clarification/justification on why I am doing these TR workouts. SSB2 High volume.
History…in August 2016 (63 years old and recently retired) purchased my first roadbike after doing mainly commuting in my working years and a weekly 10-30 km gentle ride with mates.
I progressed very quickly and I have strava segement pbs I can’t get close to now which I got in those first four months…basically over the last two years I have not improved even though I do over 10000km a year and over 200km each week but they have all been mainly Z2 rides. I keep up easily on weekend group rides,
The reason I thought I would start TR plans was to see if I could improve again. My first ramp test FTP was 202 and my latest just recently was 221 so it has worked BUT I wonder why do I put myself through 5, 15 minute SP intervals and in a few days time I have these VO2 intervals with sprint sessions ( FLUME) I think it is overkill for my needs…I don’t want to race.
Has anybody any ideas what sort of plan would be more suitable for my needs. I am currently on high volume SSB2. Completed SSB! low level to begin with.
