I’m debating whether it makes sense for me to make the switch to high volume traditional base for a while. Some context.
I’m currently in the middle of my build phase. After this week, I’ll be entering a rest week followed by another four weeks of build. I’m using plan builder and my A event is set in September.
The event I’m training for is a long gravel ride (250 miles in one day) so I’m thinking that traditional base would be particularly beneficial. In addition, I now find myself in a situation where I have a lot of free time.
Does it make sense to switch to traditional base at the end of this four week build, and then return to plan builder after? Or should I just keep going as I’ve made some decent ftp progress with the plan that I’m on?
