My 12 week all purpose (intermediate) comes to an end on 21st March with the Full Frontal.
Question 1: If I add my next plan now, or after I’ve got new numbers, will the plan have different sessions planned if my rider profile changes on the 21st? I know the numbers will change, but will the sessions themselves change? I was a sprinter, but that was because I was THAT unfit. Sustained effort was poor. My VO2 according to Garmin has gone from below 34 to above 43 so there should be some significant changes to my 4DP profile and rider type.
My goal is to be able to go for a ride, and not care if I get lost because I will know that I can ride my way home. So long days out on the bike, and “up” is the direction at the start of the day, and “home” is the direction at the end of the day.
Question 2: What is the is the best next plan for me. I like the look of All Purpose Road (advanced), Gravel Grinder 100m, or Gran Fondo? I can only ride indoors over the next few months but don’t mind doing long rides indoors.
Very long term I’d like to do an organized Gran Fondo as I used to do 100m rides with 3-4000m of climbing almost every weekend (like many people, when I was a lot younger).
Any ideas on when to chose the next plan, and what the right plan would be?
