Just wanted to check if someone could clear my doubts with this.
I have just started week 5 in the Dirt Destroyer training plan and I am feeling the workouts not as hard as expected and advanced by the comments . I had the same feeling in week 4 compared to week 3 where I was hitting higher bpm.
Week 3: Hitting 160bpm in the last and averaging 140 or so (my max is 185)
Week 4: Hitting no more than 138bpm and averaging 125.
Week 5: (24 shots to fire) Hitting 151 in the highest effort and going a bit over the set power and just for 1-2 minutes. Averaging 114!
Before starting I made an FTP ramp test and got 170W, which is currently set for the workouts but the feeling is that I should increase that, maybe for all the workout or maybe bias when the efforts comes?
Additionally I have notices that my fitness score is actually decreasing because the training impact I having is extremely low compared to previous weeks. That also happens in my outdoors runs which somehow confirm that my FTP might have increased, right?
Thanks all in advance and ride on!!
