During base, it was easy to get motivated to gain the requisite TSS points I needed to meet my weekly goals.
Now that I'm transitioning to my first build week, I find it somewhat less stressful that I'm racking up fewer TSS points, despite the short bouts of pain involved when introducing interval work (SST 30 min. blocks, LT 5 X 5 mins, 6 x 5min VO2max reps).
While I recognize that I am trading off volume for more intensity, it would probably be better to keep the equation in check with a solid weekly TSS goal to shoot for.
What might be a typical % of the latest high water mark TSS score from base? i.e. at the last week of base, I incurred 1000 TSS, what should the first week of build look like in terms of TSS?
What sort of reduction in TSS can I expect throughout the upcoming build weeks (i.e. % reduction week by week)
