Has anyone noticed a trend of their weekly TSS (and daily TSS) dipping after a significant TSS increase?
I’ve noticed that in the weeks following a TSS increase, it’s challenging to reach the same TSS as previously (likely because that TSS was artificially high since your FTP was already higher but not recorded - and now doing threshold etc at a new, higher FTP is a lot harder until your body adapts). So consequently, the average weekly TSS dips (often when FTP testing hasn’t been consistent either). Rendering the TSS data inaccurate (GIGO) And not useful as a benchmark.
So, how do you utilize your TSS as a benchmark (when not testing FTP as regularly as you should)? Should you just start subtracting x percentage the further away from the last FTP test you did?
Asking for a friend. Ok, I’m that friend. Asking for me. I haven’t been FTP testing as consistently as I should. That said, should you just assume that your TSS average will equal out and provide a reasonable benchmark over a couple of months? (And start FTP testing consistently).
Thank you for your input!
