first time TR user (thanks @stevemz) and about to complete my first block of training, as i did a speciality build for sprinting (i realize i probably did this in the wrong order, but i was eager to get off Zwift and do structured training!). my last week of the block is next week and think i’ll do a rest week thereafter, but starting the week of 2/11/19, i want to choose the next block.
- get FTP up for race season in NYC (we have a cat. 5 team where a group of us should be leveling up to cat. 4 as the first race starts end of March). currently at 219 and curious what the new FTP will be post sprinting. would love to get 250 as a stretch goal.
- hold solid power in 1 min sprints (i tend to fall on the last “push” of the race, and why i choose the sprint plan to start)
- improve power output on sustained pushes, i.e. 5 mins
i really love climbing (and have gotten much better) but i notice that i’m a weaker cyclist all around the flats for power compared to heavier riders in the team. i’m 148 lbs or 3.27 w/kg FTP.
