Will keep this one short and to the point. Should I push my training schedule back by a week to complete the festive 500 this year?
I don’t have any specific events in the calendar yet, and currently just working my way through SSB2 LV. I do plan to do a couple races when the season starts up but that’s some time away.
I’m thinking the 500 can be a good form of endurance training if I keep it within Z2, but I’m worried it will set back my fitness or lower my FTP (as it’s unstructured).
I presume I’d need a couple recovery days and may need to do a ramp test to get back on track, but anything else to consider?
