Well I just got the Wahoo Kickr set up a few days ago. I am a total beginner bike rider, although I occasionally survive 100 mile charity rides and do run marathons and take a few strength workouts per week.
So I did the calibration (spin down), and then did a ramp test for an FTP baseline (I think it was 212 watts, although I am having a tough time finding that data now).
I started the 6 week beginner FTP builder program and day1 (foundation) was fine, I definitely worked up a sweat but finished ok. Day 2 (today) was the Tempo ride 1 hr 7 min , and this was a huge challenge for me and I had to stop for 30 sec or so twice during the peak intervals (225-230 Watts). I am wondering if somehow my ramp ftp value was too high for my actual capabilities ? Feels like this beginner program is too advanced for me.
I would welcome any feedback/ suggestions.
