This week I am finishing off a 2 week recovery block after a 100 mile event and the 100 mile GG plan.
Plan calls for FF on Sunday. Then I start Volcano plan on Monday to prepare for my next event in early September.
During this recovery block I’ve been feeling pretty sluggish on the bike and not feeling like I’ve made gains other than in my endurance fitness. I did The Cure @100% on Wednesday - I’d say it was manageable - I definitely didn’t go over the line on the power targets. This l morning (for the first time ever) I struggled with building my cadence in Cadence Builds. I just felt blah… Plan has Primers tomorrow.
I last tested in May when I went from a classic trainer to a Smart trainer. Overall, I’d say I hit the targets on most of the workouts, rarely going over the line or feeling like they were more on the easy side unless it was a sustained VO2 Max effort (think 9 Hammers/AVP - yeah, I know, weird that those feel good. Right?).
So, I’m pondering. Do FF? Do HM? Skip the fitness test? Do the FF week long plan next week to flush out more fatigue?
