Completed the second 4 week of sustained build low volume. It was absolutely brutal but only failed on a couple of workouts. Have added a 4th 30 minute HIIT workout mid week when I stay away from home and a very uncomfortable hotel gym bike is my only option.
Did the ramp test yesterday and I maintained my exact ftp. Felt ok in myself (maybe a little tired but nothing unusual for a Monday) and I’m confident I pushed as hard as I could as I found a new max HR.
My plan was to go onto century low volume next but with no gain for so much pain, should I repeat this second block, continue with the century plan or try something different altogether? First goal this year is a 100 miler in mid-May.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
