Im currently pregnant in week 28 and started to use TrainerRoad this week.
Im wondering if any other women has experiences of this? What plan on TrainerRoad to follow, what kind of training that might be benificial while being pregnant or just any advice?
Ive put my first A-race in beginning of July 2021 (no idea if thats possible after giving birth etc) and was planning on to follow the calendar of a loong base phase until the start of 2021 (when I hope the kid will arrive). As Ive heard that I should try to keep my heart rate not higher than at 90% of my maximum, and this works well with sweet spot intervals.
Ive been super lucky until now (soon in third semester) and have been able to ride about about 10 hrs per week during my pregnancy so far. Mainly Im doing it just because it makes me feel so much better and eventually I also hope not to loose so much of my form ( my FTP was about (260W/60kg) 4 w/kg when I got pregnant, and now Ive dropped to about 230 w in actual numbers in FTP, and thats not too bad. But Ive also gained about 10 kgs so the w/kg-ratio is not that good anymore but it doesnt matter as far as I can keep on riding ) .
Happy for any kind of advice on this .
