I’m in SSBMV 2, with Kaweah on the calendar today, and Geiger +2 for tomorrow. The weather was great today and decided to get outdoors to get a feel riding in a fast group before racing in a few weeks (see below).
We ride out and do a shortened version of a very intense Saturday ride, which ended up being about 45 minutes of race pace riding for me and an NP 20 watts higher than my current FTP (which may need updating now that I’m thinking about it ).
The question is which indoor ride should I do tomorrow considering today? I recover pretty quickly and have never had a problem completing a workout to this point, so should I just do the workout with the higher IF? I also plan to do this ride again next week, so maybe I need to understand which workout is better to replace in general so I can learn the ways of the TR Jedis… Go based on feel?
I would choose one based on my goals and A-race, but those are far in the distance and these weekend rides are all in the sweet spot/threshold range which I’m not sure I know how to differentiate those two when it does come down to my future race goals.
