I just got the training subscription and added you guys in on TP. I achieved some really high fitness this year (almost 110 CTL) using the 18 week Sweet Spot plan and SS part 4. I fell ill at the beginning of week 5 of SS part 4 and have since let my body catch up on some rest so I can start an early off-season.
I’d love some help with when I should start my plans, and which plans I have time to fit in before my first A race (Tulsa Tough). I haven’t done a VO2 build this year, and with my CTL sagging down around 50 right now I’m not sure if there’s time to do one before starting the 10 week resistance phase.
Going off of my TP data, do I need to do all 18 weeks of Sweet Spot or should I have a decent base roll over and afford to only do SS2, SS3, and SS4? If I can afford time to ride more than the 12-16 hour average, where should I add the time in? I’m looking to upgrade to Cat 2 and have a strong summer with a lot of racing, granted that race organizers are hosting events.
