I’m a guy in my early 60’s. Been cycling several… a bit more than several years. Raced on the road, 5 years on Zwift (1,500 hours). Averaged Zwift /road combined about 18,000 kms a year for the last 5 years. Until this year due to interstate relocation… buy/sell…. major distractions over nearly 6 months. That caused a massive cut in volume.
Anyhow, I’ve been trying to keep in touch with fitness by focusing on high intensity Zwift sessions, and I did some TR hit outs as well, so I’m still thereabouts. Now, I’m ready to get serious again with the view to performing well on the road this coming summer. The vague plan is to do LV TR and Zwift. Probably nothing outside, just crush it indoors until I’ve hit a target. Bit random but maybe 3.6 w/kg. I’m currently 68 kg but looking to drop back to 66.
So here’s the question, I completed a ramp test a few months back when my fitness had dropped off, and as expected the result showed the need for work to be done. I have uploaded a screen shot of a Zwift ride from a few days ago and would be interested in any comments that would help me decipher where I might be at currently and what approach would be effective. Recorded using a Kickr V5. I had been using a Neo 2 T until a week ago and results are similar. I use Assioma Duos on the road BTW. Highly recommended.
