I just finished ssb 1 and 2 mid volume. I was consistent in completing workouts however I did a few outdoor workouts in place of the planned tr rides just to stay fresh in group scenarios. My question is I lost 8 lbs over the period but my ftp just tested 8W lower than the ftp I completed the plans on.
Did I do something wrong? My W/kg is basically unchanged. Also I did a group ride Saturday which training peaks informed me I had a new ftp of 275 W which is 5 W higher than I was training ssb.
In a nutshell
Start of SSB 2 weeks post finishing a sepacalty crit plan and racing all winter.
84 kg and ramp test 270 W (3.21 W/kg)
Post SSB 1 and 2 at 270 W ftp
81 kg and ramp test 262 W (3.21 W/kg)
My plan is to move with my new 262 W FTP into sustained power build the 40k TT in preparation for a 20 mile hill climb in September.
