I’ve started using Welltory to track my HRV for recovery and it’s been pretty low for the last couple of weeks, so I’m not sure if it means I’m not getting enough recovery time.
I am still fairly new to cycling started in August and my ftp is 93. I’m currently on the medium plan and thinking of dropping down to low volume or trying out the polarized training plan, since I also lift weights on my off days which is probably not helping my recovery.
Where I’m confused is with the polarized training plan, how do I plan it out to take into account upcoming events. There is one in Halloween and another I have a century ride in April next year.
Do I put in a base, build, then add a specialty and going backwards from the April event?
