So I’ve been suffering for a number of years, initially on TrainerRoad using virtual watts on a dumb trainer before switching to SUF many years ago, using the same dumb trainer but with a Stages PM.
This will be my 5th tour and for the first time I’m working through the prep plan. All going well - I survived ISLAGIATT somehow last weekend - until this week when said PM decided to give up. Having tried everything to revive it, to ensure I didn’t miss too much suffering I bit the bullet and ordered a smart trainer which arrived today. I’m now back to suffering! Yay!
So here’s the question - I’m now working with numbers created using the PM. So I need new numbers. So, do I:
- swap out a session in the prep plan for another FF?
- swap out a session for HM and try to work out the “gap” between old PM and the smart trainer
- carry on and hope for the best
