This is purely humble brag but I think this group can appreciate more than most. After SSB1 and a 2 week vacation I did a ramp test with a little bit of jet lag and got a 203 ftp. Thought it was a little low so I started SSB2 at 210 and then raised it 1 watt every 2-3 workouts (experimenting on my part). By week 5 I was using a 218 FTP and on that Thursday’s workout I had to bail for the first time during these training blocks.
Finished off the week at a conservative 213 FTP as the legs felt cooked. Followed the rest week closely and this morning I had an FTP of 225!
That was about my peak last year (granted I had some sporadic spots) but definitely happy at the result and looking forward to the coming months.
