I’m starting my SSBMV1 recovery week this week and was thinking of bringing my ramp test forward. Here are my thoughts.
- I spend my recovery weeks thinking about the impending ramp test and find it hard to motivate myself for the endurance / recovery efforts as a result.
- I think I perform pretty well with a bit of fatigue in my legs on a ramp test. Plus if I don’t I could always do it again.
- I’d still do the recovery week - so would still get the benefit from that.
- I front load my weeks anyway with 4 of my 5 workouts done midweek, meaning I’m coming in to the week relatively fresh after only 1 weekend ride on Saturday.
I’d be really interested to hear what experiences are out there on this.
Having typed this out I think I’ve answered my own question and I’ll do a ramp test mid week and see how that goes - I can always re-do it at the weekend or on Monday if I don’t perform well.
