Hi all, I’m getting back into cycling after ~10 years. Been somewhat out of shape in the mean time. I’m 38 weeks out from an event I want to do, 2 days of 70+ miles in the mountains.
I read the ‘Too Much Time’ training question, so I figured I want to add base, but didn’t have the luxury of doing a second build phase.
I was thinking of filling the additional time by doing Traditional Base >SSB > Sustained Power Build > Century. My reasoning on doing a double base is because I need to build up what I consider to be no fitness. That puts me about 2 weeks over, however. Should I cut 2 weeks from Traditional Base since I’m doubling my base? Or perhaps skip a block of traditional base, and have 2 extra weeks just in case stuff comes up.
