I believe that is a ‘friends’ quote… but the meaning is different here.
so I switched from a base training to a hill intervals plan and I have a pretty hard time to find my rhythm.
so I ended my base training with the FTP test and afterwards pushed a few days on to do a bit of an overload.
than I started the hillclimb plan and I didn’t do the FTP test, but a strong session with a similar ‘stress’. but apposed to the base plan, I feel like I am always one step behind and never really get a good feeling.
it isn’t the motivation, I can push through that. it is more that I do my workout with the new zones and manage to do it, but barely and without ever feeling good legs in the almost 3 weeks I am doing this.
am I missing something or will the ‘benefit’ only be felt when the plan is over? my fatigue is always bigger than my form in training peaks.
