Hello fellow members!
In trying to research my own answer on whether to do specialty or not, I’m getting mixed signals.
My outdoor riding consists of commuting and the occasional rambling around local roads. No events. TrainerRoad for me is just about increasing my fitness & FTP at the moment.
AACC has mentioned the idea that specialty doesn’t build you up so much as hones the blade. There has also been the occasional mention of skipping specialty in certain cases.
Enthusiast specialty also seemed to counter this, as there’s a specialty plan for someone that doesn’t race.
Should I skip specialty as a non-race that just wants to get faster?
ps, the terms of searching this are pretty general, and I didn’t find specific answers. I’d welcome a link if there’s someone that’s already answered this question for someone with no future plans to race
