My goals are to bump my FTP to 325 and to weigh 170lbs consistently, I usually hover 172-175 during the summer months.

Also want to ride more places, namely more mountainous areas like the Catskills in NY, some of the stuff around Pagoda PA, and a few other nearby states.

No events or even group rides. :sleepy: I’m just trying to keep fit while mostly restricted to the trainer. I’m hoping things will turn around.

I’m going to just focus on the training process without defined goals - get through base and build and see how far I can get. I’ll be my own science experiment of one.

  • 5 w/kg on TR Ramp Test
  • A+ Racer Cat in ZwiftPower (>4.6 wkg in race)

Lose 50lbs

Train consistently using TR

Race cyclocross next fall/winter and not die

Finishing all my planned cx races would be even better (than the die part)

4.5w/kg (375W @ 183#). Currently 329 @ 238#. I know I can get the weight off (as I’m down from 307) but I really have no idea where the upper limits of my power are. Will approach it with curiosity.

Gran Fondo Hincapie @ +/-4:45. It’s +/-80 miles and 8k feet, I did a shortened version (60m and 6k feet) in 4:41 this past October.

Did this exercise when I started my plan for 2021 on November 7th.

Baseline: 309 W FTP @ 86 kg

Process goals 2021:

  1. Consistency (Train 5x / week)
  2. Eat well (little processed food)
  3. Race patiently

…and that hopefully takes me to 330 W @ 82 kg.

==> so far 100% compliance with training and really cleaned up my diet. Sitting at 319 W @ 83.5 kg at the moment.

  • Keep enjoying cycling - in which ever form it happens to be.
  • Enjoy the process of structured training, without loosing sight of above.
  • Keep learning about training and nutrition
  • Dip my toes in racing if I feel I improve enough over the winter - just not quick enough to hang with age group yet (no categories here)
  • Ride part of the local brevet series, not sure I want to go further then the 300 km. 600 and up is a bit much.
