If you have the time and are mentally committed enough are you able to do a high-intensity plan or must you acclimatise yourself to weeks of high TSS before attempting one?
Some background, I’ll be a junior next year and this winter is the first time I’ll be doing serious structured training where I record TSS etc in the hope it’ll make me much faster come next season. Previous to this I’d done consistent 4/5 day weeks with each of these sessions being hard workouts eg. Track League and coach led track training sessions along with long road rides. Considering I have the options of long club runs (at a moderate intensity) on weekends to help build a base would it be sensible to choose a medium volume plan to allow me to build these in without overloading my TSS.
