I’m currently coming to the end of SSBII (mid volume), and about to transition into build. Ultimately I was gearing up for the Tour of Flanders (early April).
Now I would be tremendously surprised if this actually goes ahead, so with that in mind, I’m contemplating re-jigging my training plan. I have no alternate events in mind, as at this stage, it seems much more sensible to wait and see how the vaccine rollout across Europe brings the pandemic under control (or not).
I’d add that I’m enjoying the sessions and making good progress.
So assuming I’m just looking to become generally ‘stronger’ (currently sitting at just under 4w/kg, VO2 a strength, long threshold intervals a weakness), where would people go from here?
On a side note, I’m also considering investing in some smart rollers (Elite), as I’ve noticed that my core has weakened and my pedalling stroke lacks a little fluidity after doing most of my ‘hard’ work on the trainer. Any thoughts on that would also be appreciated.
Thanks for the input.
