I’m two weeks shy of wrapping up the Century plan and wondering what’s the best course of action from this point. I’m in Europe and it’s getting really cold, and while I enjoyed doing low volume plans with sprinkled outside rides before, I’d rather hunker down this winter and try to get as fit as possible for the spring.
I’d also like to note that I’m not racing apart from an occasional gran fondo here and there, and my goal is to basically hang in fast group rides which are usually 3-4h duration, and go fast up hills which are usually 12–90 minutes in duration.
My idea is to do a ramp test and restart base and build in mid volume. Does that sound like a good idea for me at the moment? Also, when that’s done, where to go next? Century low volume is my idea, since I plan to supplement with two long outdoor Z2 rides.
Thanks for the help.
