Quick question, I feel my training peaked probably 2-3 weeks ago, I can feel the workout outs getting harder during my speciality phase and I know deep down my FTP has probably dropped off 5-10 watts. On the road I feel sluggish even after a couple of days off.
I have a “A” goal being a week long riding tour, not racing more of a gand fondo between friends but its a lot of riding, what I have geared my year towards on 8th Aug so 3 weeks away. So my question is to I stick to my plan but back off my FTP, even be on the conservative side? Or try and gut it out and start my taper about 10 days out? I’m a week into my speciality phase.
I’m worried I’m going to go into it too cooked rather than coming into some sort form. Could be a touch of building fatigue but had a rest week a couple of weeks ago.
Any tips would be great
