@chad +1 for really eager for a deep dive in this. I find that when I’m very close to my all-time high FTP, the percentage of repeatable VO2 intervals drops a bit. For instance, if I’m on an upward (base) swing of FTP I may be able to do 120% VO2 efforts pretty well. But when my FTP is as high as I’ve ever gotten it, my VO2 work may only be possible at 113-115%. I’ve noticed this over several training cycles with TR.
I conclude from this that I may benefit from trying to raise that VO2 “roof” rather than the FTP “ceiling”, especially when I’m at personally high historical FTP. If you think the 2 week VO2 focus camp is advisable, any additional guidance would be great. (If it’s relevant, I’m 54, 3.7 w/kg at 291 FTP) Thanks, as always!
