Hey guys, just a quick question and get your take on this. In September I tested at 288w (146lbs) for my ftp test, did my cyclocross season, took a few weeks off the bike completely and returned to indoor training after the holidays. I tested again at 278 watts and went with the ssb1 medium plan. I was able to do the weekly workouts no problem. Some were definitely tough, but the Saturday workouts I was coming close but failing the last interval or worse. Today I’m in the last work week of the plan and I couldn’t even finish the first interval of McAdie +1. I had set my ftp back two weeks ago to 270 thinking maybe the ramp over estimated my ftp some but today after failing again I’m wondering if it’s still too high and I’m just fatigued and not recovered from this weeks work. Now missing all of my Saturday workouts has left me a bit confused as I’m wondering at this point if I should be repeating ssb1 again. I’ve not had any issues finishing any of the Sunday workouts. Looking for some advice as I know I can get through tomorrow’s workout no problem. Should I be worrying about going back and reassessing and repeating or continue to ssb2? Next week is the rest week and the last week of the plan.
I did my ramp test on a cyclops Hammer with the ramp in erg mode. This is my second year with using TrainerRoad. Thanks in advance.
