The goal for 2020, 4 w/kg sub 8 hour Fred Whitton
Currently 96kg, 248 ftp ramp test, 282 8 min test (currently doing chads Vo2 workouts at 248 to try and improve this capability)
Training / riding. Tr low volume
Monday TR workout
Tuesday group ride (everyone is better than me so won’t be a limiter as I get better) TSS 150-185
Friday TR workout (1.5 hour)
Sunday MTB Group ride (currently slowest in the group so again, not a limiter) hrTSS 140-175
Weekly TSS between 450-500
If I don’t do one of the group rides then I do the third TR workout for the week instead.
As for losing the weight diet is generally good other than an unhealthy relationship with chocolate and lucozade. Plan to curb this and follow the 5/2 diet. Riding days will not be either of the calorie restricted days.
So I guess my question is are my goals unrealistic for the time I can put in? I think I can get to 85Kgs fairly easily with some discipline so I would need an FTP of 340 which seems a lofty number.
Any thoughts on my plan are really appreciated both positive and negative!
