I’m curious if anyone uses the Blocks Training plans and then modifies them, which doesn’t look like you can actually do in the app (customize it, unless I’m missing something). So I figure this would look like selecting the block, and then just doing additional/different workouts when needed.
I’m looking at either doing the MAP block to lift my FTP ceiling or the FTP block. But either way I also feel like I need a good long ride each week. But for where I’m at, my longest ride has been the Half the Road at 1:45. I imagine that maybe I could do that pace for 2 hours, and maybe 2.5 hours at 50% FTP. Anyways, I feel like I want to also be building a bit of endurance, but not have that be all of my focus. If I can get up to 2.5 to 3 hours for easy-moderate ride, that would be great. But I definitely need to work on my FTP. So, thought about adding/swapping a long-ride in once a week with the MAP or FTP blocks since many of the rides aren’t that long.
I welcome any thoughts about any of this! FYI, I’m more of a noob with cycling. I did a triathlon a looooong time ago, but just started getting back into shape in January with a new Keiser M3i and Sufferfest. Last 4dp numbers, which I’ve probably already improved a bit are FTP 106, MAP 151, AC 245, NM 511.
I so wish I could do the custom training plan!
