This is the first time I’ve populated my TP Power Profile chart. Interesting and eye-opening to say the least. Looking for some analysis on any/all levels to explain what I’m seeing. Some details of the data:
- 16 weeks starting with a Festive500; 4 weeks unstructured JRA, 6 weeks of 3x Threshold + 2x VO2max/week; 6 weeks of 2x Threshold + 3x VO2max/week; 5 hours/week.
- 13 weeks of training done on a single-speed with HR/RPE only.
- 3 weeks of training on race bike w/ power meter; mostly outdoor TT practice runs.
- SSBLV 1+2; Sustained Power Build HV; SSBHV 2; +2 weeks VO2max; ~8-10hr/week.
I guess the big question is, as per the PP chart, why the TR training didn’t raise any of my common durations above my hack/bodge pre-TR training levels? I mean, according to TP, in 3-4 months I trained myself from zero to marginal Cat.2, yet with 7 months of TR I slid down to a marginal Cat.3.
Newb gains? Intensity responder?
Thanks for anything.
