In my lead-up to possible gran fondos in July 2021, I started a training plan in September. I’ve just finished SSBMV I & II and started my first week of SPB. Although the results have been satisfying, i’m getting doubts about the sequence of training phases.
What i’m looking at from now (beginning of December) until July is Sustained Build, Specialty Phase, again Sustained Build and again Specialty Phase. This was recommended by the TR Planbuilder. The reasons i’m having doubts are:
looking at the calendar trainings look very rigourous from now on all the way through to July , and definitely a step up from what i’ve been doing the last couple of weeks. What I fear most here is some sort of training burnout
@mcneese.chad tells otherwise:
So should I change the first specialty phase in my plan to 8 weeks of base training or should I leave it the way it is?
