After 6 weeks of SSBIIMV and some of my best consistency, I was feeling really good. Had an event this last Saturday, set new 2,3, and 4 hr PR’s, Boosting my confidence in an impending increase from my 266w FTP.
Yesterday was my Ramp Test, I was feeling decently fresh and well recovered from Saturday’s effort. Result? 264w.
I had the best consistency I’ve had.
I got 8 hours of sleep each day.
My diet could have been better, but I maintained weight so at the very least I wasn’t way over or under eating.
I did usually replace the Sunday workout with a long outside ride.
I did have a bike fit done ~4 weeks ago.
I’m trying to identify why I might have not seen an increase and would love some input.
Was it that I was still carrying too much fatigue from Saturday’s effort?
Was it that my Sunday long rides were too much?
Was it my diet?
Was it my training plan?
Was it effects from the adjustments of the bike fit?
Was it something else?
I’m not upset that I had a decrease, but I did put a lot of effort in the last 6 weeks and I would like to try and pinpoint what might have happened and try to fix it.
