Since I started using TR in May my FTP has gone up ~35w, so I’m assuming that the workouts I am doing now are “more work” compared to those I did 3 months ago.
However, the other day I went back through the normalized power of my workouts on TR and my highest NP in a workout was over a month ago, my workout 2 weeks ago had a higher NP than my last workout as did a workout I did almost 7 weeks ago.
My FTP has been increasing and the workouts are hard (well not the endurance ones) but I’m surprised to not see something that is reflecting what I would think be more work I am doing in the workouts as “80% of FTP” or whatever has become a higher number.
Is it just difficult to compare due to different phases of the plan or is there something that I can look at that would show my increased “output” in workouts?
My FTP has risen but it seems like I’m doing the same amount of “work” as I did months ago with a lower FTP.
Thanks, while I don’t have a lot of repeat workouts, there does seem to be an increase in kj in workouts similar to the percentage my FTP has increased by so it seems to be the metric I was looking for.
