I’m using the in-season Road plan, and am happy with how things are going. I’ve got 2 races this weekend, the first of which matters for a points race I’m in. Today’s training plan activity is calling for 1:15 duration, including 5x1 minute ‘full gas openers’ for the race tomorrow, with a planned TSS of 100. This would be the highest TSS of the week’s plan activities (not including the races this weekend), and would put me at a -15 TSB going into tomorrow’s race. I tend to do Ok with a slight negative TSB before a race, but -15 is reaching the point where I’m a little worried. Do I just suck it up and FTFP? Do I revert to last Friday’s 1hr 4x45 ‘full gas openers’, which would be 70 TSS, leaving me at a marginally higher -12 TSB for tomorrow’s race? Am I overthinking this?
Whatever I do, I’m gonna be doing it in the next hour or so, so if anyone has any sage advice, I’m all ears!
