I have a question about how to transition from Traditional Base LV to SSB LV - or how to adjust SSB LV.
Background: I’m new to unstructured training. One of my knees is a bit sensitive to high increases in training stress, so whenever I train, I need to give it some time until the muscles and the joint are strong enough.
I did unstructured training last year and then in autumn began with SSB LV 1. Enjoyed it tremendously, until SLT elements made my knee angry and I had to stop in the last week of LV1.
I’m 4 months off the bike now and eager to start again but don’t want to run into the same situation. I figure if I don’t change anything, the result will be the same.
My plan is to start with Traditional Base LV1 but I am looking at continuing with SSB LV1 - SSB LV1 perfectly fits my available time and still gives me some room to ride outside. Traditional Base quickly becomes too demanding (time wise).
What would be the best strategy? Repeat every other week of SSB LV1 to create a slower TSS ramp? Mix elements of SSB LV1 and Traditional Base?
Any input would be appreciated!
