I was dead set on my plan for this year, but now I’m wondering If should mix it up.
I just finished SSB MV I/II Did my ramp test yesterday and was planing on restarting SSB MV I/II, go to general build, then rolling road race.
My A++ race is masters nats weekend as I’ll do the RR and crit. Hence, all this base. But now I’m curious if I have enough time to do two builds/peaks - June 7-9 for Tulsa Tough which sadly is the same weekend as our state crit.
And after Masters Nats I’ll be doing Gateway Cup and hoping to ride that fitness into that. Then take a mini break and get right into CX. Plus, my base was horrible last year especially when CX rolled around. I was a straight up crit guy last year and it showed.
I’ll be racing 3-4 times a month probably as well between crits and road races starting mid March. I’m also one of those who likes to race into shape. But, I would like this year to be different.
Am I doing it right with all of this base or should I roll into a build and speciality for Tulsa?
I guess I"m just worried my bursts and the such won’t be there come March/April. My ftp is up about 18 watts since early November.
I am also starting to substitute the weekend workouts with a long endurance/tempo ride 3-5 hours, and one day of threshold/group ride that is basically a mock race.
