Looking for some feedback on some plan modifications I’ve made. With nothing in particular to aim for at the moment I’m trying to get some good build work done. Current FTP is around 335-340. I’ve been feeling like I’m being let down a little at the higher end. My workable vo2 power is around 400 at the moment.
I’ve picked up the short power build with the aim of bumping up my vo2 and have made a few adjustments. Namely I’ve switched the 3rd intense workout each week with another vo2 workout. So, I’ve replaced ‘Lion Rock’ and ‘Junction’ with ‘Bluebell’ and ‘Bluebell +1’, respectively. And in the second part of the block I’ve replaced ‘Richardson +3’, ‘Augusta’ and ‘Xalibu +4’ with ‘Mills +1’, ‘Mills +2’ and ‘Mills +4’, respectively. I’ve also taken out the sweetspot/threshold workouts in these plans and I’m replacing them with long weekend rides (i.e. 3 hours +).
Do these seem like a reasonable adjustments to be making?
Also after this block I’m considering a couple of easy weeks and then moving straight on to building sustained power - is this a bit rash? I’ve been considering going back to sweet spot MV2 instead but not sure.
Any and all advice much appreciated.
