So in an impulse move, I decided to sign up for the Iceman Cometh in the Semi Pro/ Pro Category.
Ive neglected my high intensity riding through the better part of September, such that I can feel that my top end performance has slipped away. I still have plenty of endurance as ive been doing 2-3hr road rides fairly regularly, but like I said, that top end 90% mhr stuff seems like its gone.
So with three weeks to go I started doing some intervals 3x a week to try an revive whats left of my top end.
Ive been varying durations from 45s full out on day 1, 5minute endurance intervals on day 3, and then 45s full outs on day 5. Is it reasonable to assume that three weeks of intervals will bring back some of the muscle memory and cardio performance? I plan on taking 4 days off leading up to the pre-ride, and the goal is not to exhaust myself obviously, but just bring back some top end.
