Aloha Bike Maniacs,
I am new to TR
and to this Forum.
Can you help?
I am 55,
have done olympic distance tris for 31 years
and I am new to watt based training,
and to TR Triathlon plans.
Which percentage of my FTP
should I target
or do you recommend for
a. TT 15 k (all out)
b. TT 34 k (all out)
c. OD 40 k (followed by a hopefully - again - fast 10 k triathlon run)?
In April my first TT (15-34 k, flat course, all out)
and OD tris (bike split of 40 k, mostly flat courses, obviously followed by running)
are scheduled till octobre.
I am a relatively weak triathlon biker
(currently 185 FTP, 70 kg, 186 cm, 2,6w/kg: that’s why I turned to TR plans and watt systems)
with an overproportional part of slow twitch fibres
and a relatively strong triathlon runner (39-42 min/10 km in Tris).
(before I started TR and wattage training in decembre)
my non drafting 40 k tri split duration time
- depending on wind and the topography of the course -
varies between 68 min and 80 min,
speed (of course depending on wind/topography)
varies between 30 to 33 km/h.
Thx a lot.
Keep moving and happy training
