I’m a medium trained athlete who comes from Zwift. I did a ramp-test and started training with TR to test the outside workouts. My FTP outside seems to be a lot higher than inside (20 - 30 watts). So I rode my intervals yesterday at a much hihger avg power than TR suggested. Is this OK, or is it bad for my performance in the long run?
How precise do you need to follow the avg power suggestion. I would say, too slow is not good, as you’re not creating enough adaptation, but can too hard be wrong?
I’m not talking about doing hard intervals in recovery rides and burning yourself out instead of recovering. I’m talking about doing 90% intervals on 95%. Or doing 250 watt intervals on 270 watt.
Thanks in advance!
