I just signed up for the 18 week SS plan. I am not sure if I should start this Monday or take a week to recover.
For the last 3 weeks I have done: 4x4 or 4x8 VO2 Max, 2x20 Tempo, 90 min endurance, Tabata 2x15 (30 sec x30 sec), and 4 hr endurance rides on Sun. This usually is about 550 TSS. I planned on using next week as a recovery week and FTP test in the back half before I changed my plans and signed up for Fascat.
Should I just cut the rest of my work short and do easier rides (was going to do Tempo today and Tabata/Long Endur on weekend) and be ready for the plan Monday, take a week recovery and start the 8th, or just hammer this week out as is and start the plan on the 4th?
