No racing in the foreseeable future here. And honestly I’ve been having an awfully hard time getting up and on the bike, ready to deal with this intensity before 6am. I’m switching things up, with the intention of building general fitness, raising FTP, dropping a stubborn 10lbs, and getting ready to be blazing fast for a 2021 season that hopefully takes place.
So…I’m starting Sweet Spot Base high volume. I’ve been doing the ~9hrs a week that coincides with high volume all year…adding on endurance rides and hard group rides on top of mid volume ssb and short power build. We’ll see if I can handle it. Either way…I know be it mental, physical, or both, I am more ready to do sweet spot at 5:30am than a VO2 workout or 50/40s like ansel adams +4 that I just pulled the plug on.
Anywho…I’ve complete the 1st week of the second half of short power build. Would the most logical schedule be to gonstraight into SSB, finish the first 2 weeks (so 3 weeks of work total), take a rest week, then the last 3 weeks of ssb work then rest week again, before continuing on and following the normal plan of SSB2?
