since for me offseason is around the corner I started thinking about winter training. I always have a very hard time picking up Vo2 work early in the year. After a few weeks of suffering and failing workouts it starts to get really fun to go hard.
So for this year I thought the following: Would it be a good idea (or even possible?) to maintain some form of Vo2 work year round? I am pretty time constrained and do not train more than 7 to 9 hours a week. So not really any need for a lengthy break or off season. Also I did not race much this season.
The goal would be to substantially increase my sub 5 minute power through the winter by constantly working on it. Has anyone ever tried to maintain a lengthy period of regular Vo2 work? Would something like base, build, base, build be a better way to go for it?
