I moved house and initially couldn’t train then lost my motivation to get back into it. My FTP was 249, then when I retested it was 189 after the lay off.
With the current situation I have set my first race as a CX race at the start of September and used plan builder to create my plan. I am now 4 weeks into the plan and have quickly regained some of my fitness and my FTP of 189 is probably too low.
I am enjoying being able to easily do the workouts and with my first race (possibly) not until September, to keep motivated, should I continue until the end of the block and retest or do it now?
I realise that I am not getting the benefit of running at my true FTP but doing something 5 days a week (mid volume) plus running twice a week am I missing out much in the long term.
