Lydia Gould, a 64-year-old cyclist with a history of impressive accomplishments, thought she was “too old to improve” before she signed up for TrainerRoad. But over three months, she raised her FTP by thirty watts, turned VO2 Max work from a weakness into a strength, and added more race victories.
TrainerRoad is all about helping athletes work towards goals, and for Justin Brayton those goals don’t even involve a bicycle.
