I decided to start the The General Build (low volume) plan, after completing the Sweet Spot Base plan, also Low Volume as I wanted to at least be able to ride outside 2 times a week, including the club ride on Sundays.
So after 2 weeks just riding outside (enjoying the improvement) I started General Build. This is a tough training! I really had to get into a high level of concentration and breathing to nail the trainings. But, I did and it is very fulfilling when you do! Meanwhile, I was kicking ASS outside. KOMs, Cups, PRs all over the place. Currently at 4.1 w/kg
Then, week 7 arrived and I could not finish the trainings (actually starting with the last training of week 6).
My body felt weak, like in a state of reserve. Very strange to experience something like this. I did some easy rides outside, and although I feel there is power, it’s not working. I tried a short (half mile) sprint, got a good PR (15th out of 5500), but right after the sprint I almost fainted. I know I need to rest big time, and I will (in week 8 now). I’m just wondering if anyone experienced something like this before? If I look at the TTS it’s much lower than what I normally do, and I don’t feel tired or exhausted at all (off the bike).
