In the same way that my Garmin can estimate my 5k/10k run pace (I’ve no idea how accurately it does this) I’d like to have some sort of estimations of times for some standard distances or some way of seeing the improvements I am making and maybe even those I should make if I stick with it (please don’t recommend looking at those horrible PR charts).
We used to go off of FTP increases, but apparently this is too blunt an instrument.
We can sort of use PL’s but that’s not what they are designed for and they reset when you do a ramp test.
Would be nice if TR had something that showed me how well I am doing and could even predict where I was heading.
It’s nice to see my PL’s going up and this just made me think it would be motivating to have some sort of validation of improving fitness, especially when your FTP is barely moving, but you think maybe you are getting a bit fitter in general.
