So this is quite an open ended question but would love to get some feedback.
I am currently restarting SSB - LV1 after a build and half a specialty phase. I chose LV as I want to get a couple of outdoor rides in at the weekend and use the Monday/Friday as rest days. What I have found is that I feel like I do need a leg spinner where there is a potential of a 2 day gap between workouts but more importantly due to the high base work I haven’t done any threshold/vo2 max workouts in a while. I find that Taku or Petit are great but as soon as I hit a threshold or vo2 max workout by body is like “wow not used to this!..struggle and reduce intensity”, which I don’t want to do going forward. I have found in the build phase there was at least one threshold/vo2 max workout which helps tick this over so never really noticed this “struggle”. I was just wondering if there are any workouts people can recommend to help keep on top of threshold/vo2 max without it being a high TSS or over an hour long workout which could possibly push me into too much TSS/getting too fatigued. Or perhaps a short workout out the day before a vo2 max workout that will help reawaken that part of my training. I think this might also help the day before the ramp test rather that coming off a complete rest day.
I found Scott Peak which I did earlier this week, would this be a good one to do going forward?
Or perhaps as a secondary workout to do at least once a week? Any tips would be great.
