I have had a good year using TR this year, sticking to the low volume plan I’ve been through base and build, purely with the aim of seeing how far I could improve my FTP and maintaining my physical and mental health during COVID times. I have a big event (3 peaks in Australia) in March and over summer I would like to try a short term commitment to mid volume. It’s not sustainable with 2 kids (and a puppy) long term but I thought a SS base phase at mid volume would help prepare and kick off a good year where I’d like to race. Is there anything specific I should consider when doing this? I have returned to low volume base for this set up to Xmas then I would follow that with mid volume base, then build for peaks.
Any advice or experience in making the switch would be very helpful.
