This will be the first time I created my ATP for 2020 in TrainingPeaks. I plugged in a few A and B events, and it calculated the weeks for Base and Build including weekly TSS. My question is how do I apply your SS1, SS1, SS2 plans. Is SweetSpot1 equal to Base1, SweetSpot2 equal to Base2, etc…? Then what do I use for Build1, Build2, Build3? Do I set Recovery Cycle to 3 weeks and use the validate the planned weekly TSS?
The ATP in Base1 has week1, week2, week3, week4. Then it moves to Base2 and repeats week1-week4, twice. For Base1 weeks 1-4, do I apply SweetSpot1 weeks 1-4? Then in Base2 use SweetSpot2 weeks 1-4, repeated? The same for Base3, using SweetSpot3? Then I Build1, Build2, Build3 use a specialty plan (Gravel, etc…) working backwards from the event date?
I really enjoyed following the FasCat structured plans in 2019, by first full year of following structured training. I enjoyed HUGE results, although realized I “peaked” in June and kind of burned out (faded away) in September leading up to an October gravel event. Looking forward to using this knowledge and experience to improve in 2020. Thanks in advance.
