This is my first day on TR. I searched the forum but couldn’t find the answer although I am sure it’s a common concern.
I did the ramp test and it yielded a ftp of 282W. I am not questioning the result (I used a Kickr and the power readings matched my crank-based powermeter) but I am a little concerned with the intensities of the workouts it will generate.
Right after the Ramp Test, I did the Collins +1 workout and I could barely do the 20s sprints: the last 10s were at 50rpm and struggling.
Tomorrow, I have Hunter -1 which is 3*20 minutes at Swet Spot (88-92% FTP and I seriously doubt I can finish even the first one.
My issue is this: my “trainer FTP” from the ramp test matches my “road FTP” but based on past experience is probably 30-40W higher than my real “trainer FTP” (using British Cycling 30-minute FTP Test protocol).
Is that common? If you are in my case, how do you deal with it? Do you correct your FTP manually? Will the software adapt automatically if I can’t complete a workout?
Thanks in advance for any feedback and advice!
