What do do after Specialty or VO2 block?

Curious what you go back to after a period of really high intensity. Think, a TR Speciality or one of your own or coach-prescribed blocks (VO2max, anaerobic capacity, etc).

  • Are you taking some time off?
  • Are you jumping into a block designed to lift FTP, thus reaping the benefits from raising your aerobic ceiling.
  • Are you just racing and trying to recover?
  • Other?
  • Back to Sweet Spot Base (why?)

Racing almost every week now for the foreseeable future, at least through the end of September.

Extensive FTP (threshold or sst), vo2 max rinse and repeat. I have recently added some workouts to improve anaerobic capacity (my biggest weakness) and even few workouts given me some benefits (simple 15/15s) - it was also “something new” addition and I was curious how my body will react. But I am not racing ( to weak in terms of fitness and inexperienced with bike handling) so this changes a lot in terms of periodisation.
