I am new to TR, having joined 8 weeks ago from years of no structure. I set my FTP at 276 from a test on zwift before I switched.
After 4 weeks on SPB HV my ramp gave me 268. I decided to stick with my 276 as hadn’t failed a workout in first 4 weeks.
Just completed the final 4 weeks of the plan (using the 276) and felt v strong by the end, also completing all workouts. Just tested again and got 269.
My problem is That I just about get through the 18 to 19min ramp and can’t for the life of me pedal when it goes to 19mins. Looking at HR it is close to max as you would expect.
Am I just not conditioned for such high % of ftp efforts?
Based on the last 8 weeks I am keen to bump up to 278 or even 280 but concerned testing has me going backwards.
Any thoughts much appreciated.
