Just finished half of the Short Power Build medium volume block. After the half-way recovery week I decided to switch back to SweetSpot base training as it better aligns with my goals currently. I also took 1 whole week off the bike after the recovery week due to a busy/stressful work week. I am jumping back into base training with high volume as I previously completed the sweet spot training medium volume. Skipped the ramp test since I wasn’t feeling “right” and attempted to do the first workout at my previously tested current FTP.
The workout was Geiger, and I felt swamped with fatigue about 3/4’s of the way through the first interval. My heart rate was in the 170’s which I would expect to see at threshold, not sweet spot. The second interval started up, and I had to drop the intensity significantly after a few minutes. I basically completed the remainder of the workout in endurance/recovery zones feeling fatigued as can be.
I did get my temperature taken today, and I was 97f which is normal, but I think I may still be sick? Not sure what is up but my body does feel the same level of fatigue today, and I am worried about the workout I plan to do soon.
Any thoughts or advice?
