Today marked the last workout of SSB I LV for me (Pallisade - but managed to hang in ), I completed the whole plan on my road bike.
I am in triathlon and have just been fitted on my new Canyon Speedmax and want to put it on the trainer now. This brings me to some thoughts that I would like to bounce with you guys
As I am new to riding in TT position I am considering if it is a good idea to jump into SSB II, using my conditioning from SSB I. As muscles and core/positional stabilization is different between the two positions I may have less carry-over from SSB I to SSB II, on the other hand I can probably manage given a different FTP when I test now in the TT position. An alternative would be to start again SSB I on the TT or to start triathlon half distance base. I have enough time until race season and some room to wiggle.
Finally I am also considering to do a ramp test of SSB I after the recovery week on my road bike solely to gauge FTP gains from SSB as a motivational exercise. I would time this on the saturday of the recovery week, and then test again the week after in the TT position.
Thanks for your thoughts!
