I’ve done 6 weeks of TrainerRoad built plan now - base 1 phase is complete.
This week was I assume a recovery week - most of my scheduled rides were Z2 and even Z1???
I don’t know if that’s by design, but I think it was meant to make me well rested for the FTP test on Tuesday.
Well, I went out today, with my training already on and I met some people and one thing led to another and we started ‘racing’ a bit.
I came back to my senses after an hour or so and then pedalled back home for anothe hour - again way harder than planned as I was behind schedule, but it was still a period of full on riding - as opposed to the easy ride i was supposed to do today.
Should wait a day longer or so to do the FTP test now?
Frankly - I’ve read that you should be doing your tests as part of regular training so that they reflect your typical ability rather than some hypothetical, ideal best that you can only achieve after a full week of recovery?
