Not here to bag on SUF, but trying to get some insight in to what has happened.
Previously I was racing on Zwift at least 5 times per week. Most races were over 0.90 IF and TSS was about 600 to 650 (less every 4th week). I had no problem recovering from these efforts, but I should have probably raced a little less as I was a bit tired (but could still perform).
I decided to come back to SUF with the expectation that more structure could help me gain more power i.e. phased intervals, endurance and recovery by a team of experts. I signed up to the Advanced All Purpose Plan (MAP weakness). My FF is correct as it is a struggle to complete rides (but mostly I do) and I fail really tough rides like nine hammers. I’m now in week 5.
Today I had my first Zwift TTT and boy is my power down (despite setting record HRs). I have gone backwards fast.
Any ideas? Is the volume too low? I feel like I’ve lost fitness on the plan.
