Hey mate i’ll chip and and see what I can do as best I can.
1). Am I suppose to be most “READY” for an events right after following the Base, Build and Specialty plan? Yes thats right this will lead you to peak “FORM” for your chosen A event.
I am in Week 5 of Base Sweet Spot 1, do I start Base Sweet Spot 2 the following week immediately? Yes you do simply follow on after each section of Base, Build and speciality. You will notice at the end of each phase there is a scheduled “recovery” week. This is planned as exactly what you need to rest, repair and reset for the next block of training.
I am aiming for a 100km events next year in June. I am planning my training for the events.
I started with Sweet Spot Base 1 and will continue with Sweet Spot Base 2 then one week rest to Sustain Build. That will lead me to December with Three week rest, then Sweet Spot Base 1 and 2, follow with one week rest. Finally Century Specialty then 1 week rest to my Events. Does it sound right??? Please rate my plan.
OK A few questions why the 3-week rest in December? In an ideal scenario, you would go like this.
SSB1, SSB2, Sustained Build, Century Speciality Event. You may extend SSB 2 OR build by a few weeks if you have to time up your sleeve. The idea is that there should be minimal breaks between ea that they flow from one to another. Now life isn’t perfect and stuff happens but that’s the plan.
For what you have I would try to minimise the break in December and try to do the following
SSB 1, SSb2, Sustain Build, SSB 2 ( a few weeks), Rolling RR build and then Century Speciality to finish with.
I hope that helps.
