Relatively strong and experienced rider, riding in the UK and currently a 2nd Cat. Started using Trainerroad early November
Completed SSBM2 and added a 2-300 Tss outdoor ride on top. Was definitely feeling stronger on the outdoor rides which for me at this time of year was great.
Then in early December baby no.3 rocked up and put the best laid plans in a right tailspin.
My plan was to hit BBMV2 followed by a crit speciality and hit April firing on all cylinders
As it’s baby no.3 I knew what was coming and was probably a little naive to think I could continue with a mid volume plan. So 6 weeks in since the birth and I’ve neglected the plan. I’ve still been training. 3-500 Tss some weeks, some weeks struggling to get on the bike at all. I am bloody tired to be fair and sleep is down to 4-5 hours per night at best. Finishing TR sessions is hard and I’m crashing and burning at the end of intervals.
I’m approaching the mid plan ramp test next week following the easy week but I wondered if this would be a good time to test, take stock and whilst I still want to hit April Crit ready, maybe alter my plan…or go back a couple of weeks
I fear that If I carry on as I am I’ll just not do myself justice and waste what time I have.
