Good Morning all,
This will be my second Group ride (the first I messed up).
I would kindly request to check if the following ride I created is correct for the specific requirement.
The activity I follow:
Sweet Spottin’ with a Group Ride or Solo
Don’t worry about intervals today rather use the group to push you for a sweet spot effort. In other words, take pulls on the front @ Sweet Spot.
Hold wheels (riding with stronger riders)
Use the terrain to modulate your power in the sweet spot
You can also ride out in the wind (not tucked in a draft) to achieve sweet spot
Take Sweet Spot Pulls
Its OK if your power and HR is above or below Sweet Spot for short periods of time (< 60 seconds). What’s most important is Normalized Power for entire group ride or length of time the group got going
Think in terms of 20- 60 minutes or more of a sustained effort in the sweet spot. You can ‘check’ how well you do by analyzing your power file and looking at the normalized power for the sections you rode at Sweet Spot.
Overall this should be ‘moderately hard’ effort with a TSS ~ 120 and also fun. Lots of freedom & flexibility
THE PLAN I CREATED
Many thanks for your support
