I hope it’s not too late to chime in!
This week for me is a 2nd week of a 3 week long “hard phase” where I increase intensity and volume, in order to push my CTL higher.
I’ve got some very ambitious goals for target CTL for this upcoming season, and therefore have started to increase volume quite early to get there. The good news is that I’ve completed about half of the overall time for building to my first peak of the season, and have seen very good progress already.
And here are the specifics for this week, which fall into this overall plan:
Well, they are at least, what I think this week is going to look like at this point! There may be some mid week shifts, but that’s OK. Life happens. Even if I don’t end up hitting my Training Load target for the week (827 TSS, bike only) I can adjust the plan afterwards to make up for this, or simply realize that i’ll fall a bit short of the final CTL goal (which is OK too!).
At any rate, hopefully this is somewhat helpful and interesting!
