Just finished up week 3 of Half Distance Triathlon Build (mid volume) and realized that there wasn’t a ramp test scheduled for week 5 after a recovery week. I know the plans scale up on their own, but was wondering on other’s experiences with these plans. Figure there is mostly three options:
Leave FTP as is and finish the second half there, retest during Specialty
Manually adjust FTP for second half
Take Ramp Test after recovery week and adjust week accordingly.
I do think my FTP has increased (been bumping up the intensity on a few workouts recently) so am leaning towards one of the latter two, but was curious if others had gone through this and found that the increase in intensity within the plan was sufficient for them.
