I started using TR in October on the low volume Sustained Power Build - thinking that this is what I need to work on. I finished the programme and started doing the same programme again but have really hit some sort of wall - it seems both physically and mentally. I haven’t had massive jumps in my FTP, it’s been creeping up from 162 to 172 (bit rubbish I know my only saving grace is that I’m quite light though at 56kg… not even sure if this is relevant in TR!?!). I have also been doing maybe one ride outside and also working once a week with a PT in the gym. Anyway, round two of this programme and I’ve messed it up at week 4 after the Ramp test in that I felt tired, under the weather, christmas has happened and I’m still not feeling it, so I pushed back the sessions but still unable to complete the workouts. I’m really at a loss as to what to do about this… should I choose a different programme maybe go to Base or work at a lower intensity on the Sustained Power Build?
Any advise welcomed.
Many thanks. Karen
