Been dreading my ramp test, for a couple of days. It’s amazing how that grind up to the 20 minute mark can turn into the most uncomfortable experience, ever.
I’ve been averaging a 2% increase in FTP every 4-6 weeks, so I’m tempted to just add that to my current FTP and move on with my training. Maybe “Do the Nate” (i.e. Baxter) instead.
Yes, I know learning to suffer is important. Yes, I know that maybe I’ve gained more than 2% and I’m shortchanging myself. But does anyone see anything actively bad with just adding some to my FTP and moving on? I promise to adjust it back down if I find myself having to turn down the intensity of my workouts, on a regular basis.
