Hi all - just did Palisade as part of the mv ss base 1 plan and had to put the intensity at 113% to be challenged. Is my trainer providing wrong data (flux - calibrated prior to training)? Somebody got similar experiences? Should I change intensity/reset trainer? What would you do?
Some background - 188cm / 71 kg - ramp test october 19 about 255 - due to injuries it decreased to 236 in Jan 20. In the meantime caught covid19 and some knee injuries, but started with the base plan again 4 weeks ago (put ftp at 230 as I didnt want to ramp to be careful with the knee - Reinstein made me puke during the second interval but seemed doable). I definitely expect an increase of ftp during this plan as I wasnt able to train a few months and mostly bike on heart rate basis. Due to injuries however never able to finalize base phase the last 1,5 year so no experience with gains.
I really felt tired last week during my rest day and was happy to go to the last intense week of the plan (starting next Monday). Yesterday I drunk 4 funky beers and although the temperature in my house was 4 degrees C lower then normal and fan closer, the intervals itself are slightly shorter and I am becoming fitter this output seems to good to be true.
