Hi, i’ve been following 18 weeks of sweetspot since january, done the 18 weeks, took a short break, repeated part 2 and finishing 3 now.
Done some races, had good results, and i’m feeling well. Sweetspot workouts became a lot easier, but when i try to put the power down on zone 6 and above, it feels really much harder than it used to be.
e.g My 1 min power used to be around 600W, now i’m struggling to hold 470. Is this to be expected since i haven’t been doing hard, short duration intervals? I’m starting hill climbing intervals in august, should i expect improvements?
