Hi, I have been mtbing for about 6 years now but prior to that I was a competitive runner. I was self coached in the beginning and had a coach before getting injured and turning to cycling.
I have been going ok as a cyclist having had some structured and unstructured programs and have been using sufferfest since March 2020.
I enjoy sufferfest having done half a dozen programs but I’m starting to miss the progressive type intervals/distance I found motivating and rewarding in other programs. By this I mean things like building up from 3 x 1km reps to 6 x 1km reps over 3 weeks etc.
I trust in the science of sufferfest but find it’s all over the place, depending on what you’re training for, and rarely do you do the same workout twice in a program. I find this hard to compare workouts and therefore progress.
Are there any programs that have progressive intervals (probably another name for that) or any recommendations? I could pick a couple of workouts and repeat them etc I suppose.
