Newbie TR user here. Been riding on and off outdoors for the last 7 years but for the first time doing indoor structured training / seriously trying to improve. 5’10, 165lbs/75kg, 35yo, ~200FTP.
I skipped many SSB1 training sessions in favor of outdoor rides, where as now I’ve been properly following SSB2. I’m currently on Base 2 - mid volume and entering my last two weeks. I find that of all the workouts, the sweet spot and over/under ones were the most challenging (vs. Thresh-hold or VO2). I’ve been a decent climber but endurance strength has been lacking, and feel that I could improve more there before moving to build/speciality. I feel way more put together and pretty FTP sure will increase a bit during my next ramp test in 2 weeks.
All this said, will it more beneficial for me to repeat my SSB training given my weaknesses, or should I just move on to speciality despite skipping a lot of the early base trainings?
