Been using Sufferfest for around 3 months and just finished an intermediate All-Purpose road plan. Had some really good gains (11% on FTP and 8% on MAP) and looking forward to some more. I’m jumping in to the middle of the ToS prep plan now, and then I’ll do a Focused ToS, followed buy the post-tour plan with a full frontal at the end.
This puts me into March 8, where it’s still likely too early in the year to ride outside consistently where I live (Alberta, Canada), so I likely need to plan to ride inside until about mid-April, but after than I want to ride outside on the weekends. I plan on going with the Advanced All-Purpose Road plan.
My question is, would I be able to change over to the Indoor/Outdoor plan directly from the Indoor Only plan in mid-April sometime, or would this kind of throw the training schedule out of whack for a few weeks? Does anyone have any experience doing this?
I loaded both plans into the calendar so that I could compare. The first week looks pretty similar, but it seems to deviate quite a bit after that.
Any help or thoughts are appreciated!
