What has TrainerRoad done for YOU lately?
Guess since I started this thing I’ll go first…
My power improvements since I joined in Sept 2018:
In 6 months of TR training, I have transformed my:
5s power into my 3min power
30s –> 6min
1min –> 8min
5min –> 10min
10min –> 30min
20min –> 50min
30min –> 3hr
i) I was a pretty flabby man-baby when I started, and
ii) I have no idea if this means I’m doing anything right.
5 min +7.7%
20 min +6.8%
45 min +1.8%
60 min +7.1%
90 min +7.0%
The 45 minute outlier was interesting. I can’t go back to 2016 because I was using virtual power back then. I will be 61 in May. My ftp has gone from 251 to 264.
I’d say judging by your numbers that you’re doing everything right.
If only I knew. I started with an FTP of 189 in Fall 2017 and am now at 257. But my power curve really doesn’t say much before I start racing because I’ve been following structured workouts for the last 25 or so weeks, so not much opportunity to test the short-power range.
