3 weeks into general road plan and need some convincing that this is working
I am three weeks into the sufferfest advanced road plan with strength. My concern is that the TSS is less than half of the training plans that I am used to. I know TSS is not the end all be all but less than half is a significant drop in volume/intensity. I understand that the intensity may be lower due to the strength training, but i don't think the strength training is really causing much fatigue - it is not too different from what I have done on other plans. I am concerned that I am going to go into next race season under-conditioned. Any coached want to chime in or cat 1,2,3 racers that have experience with the training plans?
