I just did the first 4 weeks of SSB1 and my legs are wrecked. I had to forego the final week and go straight into rest week (today even Petit was hard after a day off). I followed the plan almost exactly and was able to keep up with intensity with some exceptions…
- The easy workout each week was made easier (recovery @50%ish)
- Added a handful of very easy outdoor rides (no more than 1HR at recovery)
- Bailed on 2 or 3 rides about half way through
So my question is, how many people keep up with the mid vol SS plans (really following to a tee)?
Is 4 days of hard/“moderate” intensity too much?
Its hard to imagine I will keep up during Build.
