So they are doing multiple virtual Steamboat gravel races so that does make it a bit more fun than just say a solo simulation race. And if you find a course near you that is dedicated for the event you might see a few riders out. But completely understand you not wanting to go out for a solo 8+ hour adventure.
So looking at your performance manager chart and with just coming off an interval plan I would recommend you doing something like sweet spot 2. You should work on building up your CTL and fitness back up before the fall and winter. Give it that nice boost so you can finish the training year on a high note. That way you are going into the fall and winter training period with a good base. Otherwise you maybe playing catch up even more before next year starts.
Here is your PMC now
You are at a 52 now and were up to a 75. So let’s try to build back up to a 75. Sweet spot 2 really gives you the most sweet spot and base work. Also with just having a lot of intensity in your training it would be good to back that down a bit. But after that 6 weeks I would recommend doing our sweet spot 4 plan. You would still get in that great base work with sweet spot training but with the added bonus of some polarized training with some Vo2 max work to finish out. After those 12 weeks you could go into a 2 week off season, then onto fall foundation and onto our offseason strength training.
I see your ramp test came out to be basically the same power as your field test earlier in the year. Though those test were not too far apart. It’s at least satisfying knowing that there wasn’t a discrepancy there so you have an accurate number. The gains you had on the 6 minute effort is awesome! Sticking with the training you could have maintained those gains or maybe even more. So use that as motivation to finish out the training this year. One trick I use myself is finishing those type of intervals on a hill. I don’t have any 6 minute climbs but maybe some 2 - 4 minute ones and if I am doing intervals I can have my intervals finish the last few minutes climbing. But also it is great to be able to train yourself to doing efforts on the flats! Takes some disciple, concentration and will power.
What is great about the sweet spot 4 plan is that you will do your high intense intervals rested! You will have an easier Sunday, off on Monday and a short easy zone 2 ride on Tuesday before doing the efforts on Wednesday. This way you can get the most out of yourself for the high intensity. It will be change of pace from the plans you have done.
I can get those loaded in for you starting next week if you would like. Let me know! If you are going to just restart with sweet spot 2 like I suggested I would recommend just taking it easy this weekend so you can start the first 3 week build fresh!
