TR has me ramping my 6 week avg stress to 90 by the end of SSB2HV. In SSB1HV, I was able to ramp my 6 week avg stress rapidly to 60-70 by riding outdoors for extended periods. Even as I hit extreme negative training stress balances, it all felt sustainable and I recovered well. If I continue riding outdoors, I should hit the TR prescribed high 6 week avg in just a couple weeks.
So if I’m hitting that prescribed high 6 week average of 90 faster, does that mean I can start build earlier?
If I’m understanding right, the point of base is to get the body used to stress so it can handle build periods. So if my body is already handling that prescribed amount of stress, I should be able to just start the building instead of fooling around with more base that I don’t necessarily need?
