I’m in the fourth week of the Build Me Up Plan and I although it started at the right level of difficulty I’m feeling like that is no longer the case. I’m debating whether or not to:
- Increase my FTP.
- Add additional workouts or plan.
- Switch to another plan.
However, I’m unsure if this would be wise. My primary concerns are:
- The Build Me Up plan will increase intensity and I’ll find myself over my head.
- I’ll end up over training and end the plan with worse results.
- I’ll burn out before race season starts.
My goal for training is to pick up a win or two when crit season starts. Haven’t raced in years and I’ll be racing cat 5, maybe 4 (not sure how many points I have from years ago).
Was wondering if anybody had any advice?
