I have a couple of questions in revising the 18 weeks of Sweet Spot plan that will be followed by the Sweet Spot 4 - Polarized plan in my TP account. The one and only event I’m taking part in this year is an MS Ride that actually isn’t happening in-person. I’m doing the miles on my own (I will not ride with others) based on the amount of fundraising I’ve done until August 2. Right now I need to ride 380 miles although my commitment is up to 600 miles between July 25-August 2. To do this without taxing my body much, I took out the planned workouts and added a bunch of zone 2 work. The TSS is the same numerically although the intervals are gone. I’m in the driftless WI area so there will be some zone 3-5 climbs I cannot avoid albeit short (1-5 minutes) and very random. Here’s screenshots of what I was supposed to be doing.
With completing the miles being more important than anything else during this period, would only trying to stay in zone 2 be sufficient to continue the plans? If not, can you make suggestions in TP for intervals to do intentionally based on my history and/or planned future?
Should the workouts I took out remain out of my future workload or do you want to push things back to add them back in?
After a two week period in the 700s for TSS I know my body needs an easy week. Say you add TSS during this period in TP, would you add an easy week then get back to whatever you do in question 2?
