I’ve been using trainer road for nearly a year now and have really been enjoying the product.
I’m a male 46yo 190cm and weight 84kgs. My starting ftp was at 155 in april 2019 and by Christmas i got it up 236 which as great and everything was going well. Then after that the wheels kinda fell off the wagon and Im back down to 200! I had an enforced 2 week break over Christmas as I was away on holiday with family but since then have been back to very consistently following SSB LV plan.
What could be the issue here? I find my legs just feel really weak, sometimes it is hard even getting started getting up to speed in the warm up. Its not that they blow up when going over threshold, they just generally feel weak which is strange for me as a mountain biker as I have always thought I had pretty strong legs but just not the endurance conditioning. I do 2 workouts during the week early in the morning and then one on the weekend around midday. Perhaps Im a little fresher on weekend but huge difference so don’t think its a nutrition issue.
Any ideas as to what I should look at?
