I have been struggling recently with my breathing, and my FTP dropped 25w on a Ramp Test last month.
Concurrently to this, I have been seeing my GP, who has been investigating my breathing, with a Peak Flow Test, which was extremely good albeit I am asthmatic, chest x-rays, all clear, and I am now having a Chest CT Scan.
My GP thinks I had COVID-19 last year without knowing it and before the first lockdown.
I had another RT this evening, and had an increase of 8 watts, but still struggled.
Any ideas on how I should progress and rebuild my FTP?
Should I give up on another TT season whilst I rebuild?
Build from ground zero with a Base Phase?
Or just crack on toward the Speciality Phase which is where I am heading toward?
Thanks in advance, sorry for the long email, and to Nate… I am still promoting you and TR after you kindly sponsored my Junior Womens Team back in 2013.
Cheers guys and Amber (not in that order)
