I just had 2 weeks off in south of France where over indulged and did nil exercise. The 2 weeks prior was a record week on my power curve, and kept a decent TSS of c450.
I tried doing Starr King -1 today on my old FTP of 325w - needless to say i bailed after 10mins and was nearly sick. I felt my legs fill with lactate, heart rate go up… my goodness. I’m back at my desk now… just feeling it.
Are there workouts you recommend that would getting back into the flow?
I’ve got a good weekend coming up, so can put in some distance with a few solo outdoor rides. And, I’m starting a build phase from Monday, where i retest FTP.
