So I was in good shape, good watts/kg ratio, even good results from a couple of races. Then hollidays a job change and some family time came, and now I have almost complete 2 months of not indoor training and a few outside rides on me.
Decided to go on the old fashion of having one or two races to “motivate” me. First is doing Alto de Letras (80kms with 3200mts elevation gain - one of the longest hill climbs in the world) on Sept 15th, and a Gran Fondo of 145km and 2400mts elevation gain on the second weekend of October.
Already done the Ramp Test a couple of weeks ago and got a 3.0 watts/kilo meassure. I believe with no much training should be the same these days, even when getting PR’s on some hills I have ride on the weekends (which by the way teng to tell my brain, why training if with little or no training I am still getting fast).
So my question is, I have done SSB Mid Volume, and it was good, but I believe that for those two events, I need more than that. I was considering doing SSB High Volume to get my fitness back, but without doing friday and maybe moving friday workout for wednesdays. What do you guys think of my approach?. By the way, after the six weeks, I will do the Century plan Mid Volume, which has helped me on the past to prepare for races.
