I’ve noticed after starting sweet spot base 1 high volume that my workouts are significantly harder in the mornings than evenings for me?
I like waking up early and definitely get 7 to 8 hours of sleep daily and don’t have much work and social life stress that may hinder my performance plus I make sure to fuel up correctly before every ride.
On my morning rides, I’ve noticed my heart rate is about 5-8 beats higher when doing a workout interval compare to my evening rides. I don’t feel much residual fatigue from previous workouts which rules out it being a variable that is directly affecting my performance.
But if I had to put into words it feels like my body is lagging behind on power and aerobic performance when doing workouts in the morning.
The examples below are workouts on the same week where I failed Galena the first time but the second time around I did Galena in the evening and I was able to complete it while feeling pretty strong like I could another 20 min block.
Does this mean that I should structure my rides all in the evenings?
