Tuesday Training

Back to my .erg files today. Today's session was a bit different with 1x20@91-105% of FTP followed by 1x20@88-94% of FTP so a threshold/sweet spot session.

Sessions like these are never comfortable but all in all it went very well even though my legs are perpetually fatigued to one degree or another.

It's going to be important to keep up sessions at this kind of intensity between now and the start of my attempt to ride the route of the Tour de France, not to elevate my FTP but to maintain it.

The average power for the 91-105% effort was 296W and I was happy working at this intensity which resulted in an average heart rate for the effort of 158BPM which was fine. The session overall resulted in working in my threshold power zone (L4) for 31 minutes which is a good little block of threshold training.

Steady as she goes. Happy to accept a small drop in my CTL at this stage in return for a welcome TSB boost. I must avoid getting too fatigued at all costs as it could seriously compromise my training between now and my departure date.
