Just signed up for the coaching subscription. Previously coached outside of fascat through last CX season and went on the fascat tp’s over winter / spring with SS2, SS3, started part of SS4, before transitioning into crit interval plan with the original (but now unlikely goal) of Gateway Cup over Labor Day weekend. Still planning on keeping it on the calendar for something to focus on though.
Few weeks back I was feeling great, SS was easy peasy, felt super strong on the Wednesday night group ride ('rona has been keeping the group to 5-10 people) and could drive the front easily into threshold, V02 ranges repetitively with ease. Did a big ride for me at the end of June with a few select friends - 126 mi, 10,500ft of climbing and I was a bit over geared on the climbs and was grinding away a lot under 50rpm. Climbing efforts hard, but the rest was pretty tame.
Over the next couple weeks, workouts felt like I wasn’t on top of it. Tired, legs just meh. It has been very, very humid and hot here too. Into a recovery week now and just did 2x10’ full gas. Felt like crud. Efforts were hard (they should be!) but I’ve felt a lot better at this power.
Whoop hasn’t been green in a couple weeks. Either yellow or red. Today was 32% after two days off, 2hr endurance 3 days ago. Not basing everything off Whoop, but using it as additional information. HRV has been pretty low too. Resting HR has been about five beats above my normal for that couple week duration as well.
Nutrition has been steady and on point. No qualms there.
Not sure if ya’ll see anything glaring in my trainingpeaks or can provide some other thoughts? Trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together!
