Hi All, have had a fairly decent search and can’t seem to find an answers,
while not new to cycling, I have had a decent lay off due to a knee injury and have been riding for fun/social for the last year or so. I have just started riding with the local bunch ride and am getting dropped as soon as the road climbs or the gas comes on. I need to get faster! My goal is that by the end of the year I can to stick with the pack.
So I have signed up to Sweet Spot Base Low Volume. My question is, the plan calls for 3 sessions a week with the “difficult” one on Saturdays. I really want to continue my bunch ride on Saturdays so if i push the difficult session to Thursday to get its benefit and then substitute one of the short ones for the bunch ride, is that the best approach?
It also seems like one of the weekly shorter sessions in SSB is more technique based while one is power based, any recommendations on which ones to replace.
Any advice/experience appreciated
