A question for the more exp TR users
First of all I’ll tell u a bit about me.
I’m 27 yo, No kids, physical tough work 35-40hours a week(wich isnt that much) starting early and early done so lots of time for a nap and decent training and ended previous year 15k km’s. Did some grand fondo’s lots of local group rides etc…
Have good nutrition. Pretty good sleep shedule 7-8 hours a day + some naps if i feel tired in the day!
Now i want to take it on crit racing & some good rankings in grandfondo’s.
I started SSBHV 1 upped my ftps from 225-3.6w/k(20min test) to 251-4.05w/kg (ramp test)
So my problem is now im 2 weeks in SSBHV 2 and these sweetspot efforts are getting VERY hard.
I dont give up i complete them but these take’s alot and also mentally.
The first 5 minuts im okay after i feel the power out of my legs slowly draining making it hard to complete eclipse +3 or even tallac wich is 3 x 15 ss.
The perfect example is i compare tallac from 3 dec with ftp 225 and now my HR. is 10-12 beats higher in the interval then it used to be a month ago In SSBHV1
Shud i lower the ftp or just be a ‘‘man’’ and fight to complete. I known i can complete them but does it has to feel this hard? I dont want to get overtrained.
Thanks for ur opinions
