Been thinking about this one while doing my workouts this year. As many of you I’m now back in the Base phase training for the 2020 season and while I’m not at the same FTP as the end of last year I feel like the intervals could start off at a longer duration than they are now.
The FTP setting year over year can make the workout harder compared to last year so that’s ok, but each year, the sweet spot base period starts with short duration intervals (tempo, sweet spot) and builds up until 20 - 30 mins.
I can certainly pick and replace the workouts with longer ones already but that would be a tedious task. A kind of dynamic plan would be a great feature so you can give a few parameters to the plan which then builds you workouts according to these parameters, like starting at a longer interval duration etc.
Anybody in the same boat of thinking? I’m just looking to not waste too much time building up to the same longer durations of intervals since I’m mainly targeting the gran fondo’s with longer climbs (Alps etc).
Thanks and keep up the training everyone!
