Just finished SSB 1&2 M and Build: Sustained Power.
Got a nice jump from ~190 to 245 FTP since starting structured training for the first time 5 months back. (Thank you TR team, been a challenging yet amazing journey so far!)
Question 1: I’m considering taking 2 weeks off to do some relaxed but high TSS unstructured outdoor rides (MTB + long road rides) before going back into a new SSB plan, possibly high volume this time. Hoping this won’t impact my fitness or FTP too much, but wanted to confirm this wasn’t a bad idea.
Question 2: Also skipping specialty altogether since there aren’t any events coming up, and jumping back into SSB 1&2, but would love advice on if I should be considering specialty at all, or time is better spent going back into SSB.
