I picked a fairly generic plan that seemed to suit my needs, but I’m starting to see the cracks already - I had a virtual race that I didn’t include as it was in the 2nd week of the plan (I had been training before).
It wasn’t too hard to swap that out, but I guess the plan didn’t do much about me peaking specifically for the event.
The other thing is, I seem to be on the base or perhaps build 1 phase of the plan and the workouts don’t go beyond Z3.
Looks like first VO2max and anaerobic sessions are a month from now.
Should I start messing with plan right now to slot in some higher zone workouts straight away, start a new plan again (and skip the build/base phase - I’ve done 7.5kkm this year already) or just stick to the existing plan for a bit longer to see if it works?
Based on the exercises I just can’t see getting a better ramp test FTP result - my ramp currently ends around 400W and there isn’t a single exercise scheduled that would let practice holding that power/zone…
tl;dr I don’t have any specific events scheduled, I just want to increase my FTP and maybe even power for shorter durations to impress colleagues at Sunday coffee rides (but really just to keep myself motived and just see some results of training)
