I’m sure this has been answered before but I couldn’t find a definitive answer so I thought I’d throw this out there (also I’ve never contributed to a forum before in my life!)
I’m a triathlete and I have been planning to do some bike focused blocks for a while (cycling is definitely my weakest discipline) and a minor ankle injury from running has sparked this further and I’m putting some more time into my cycling over the next few months.
I’m planning on doing sweet spot base 1&2 between now and the new year. I’m going with low volume as a busy (aren’t we all) father of 3/full time job etc.
The thing is though I may have some weeks where I can fit more volume in (with reduced run volume/feeling really motivated right now). Rather than selecting medium volume and failing some weeks though, my hope is to crush low volume. But with extra workouts should I:
a) just move on to the next workout in the plan and potentially finish the plan ahead of schedule?
b) slot in a different workout in addition to the plan? If so what kind of workouts would compliment sweet spot work without hindering quality of prescribed workouts?
Anyone have expierience? Much appreciated
