Before I crippled myself at the running track I had been training to power on the turbo trainer, based off my FTP I calculated before I crippled me knee (see power testing.) however I found the sessions quite easy, which they shouldn’t be. I decided that before I rear tempted a block of training I would retest my power. Same as before;
20 min warm up, 5 min max effort, 10 min easy, 20mi TT effort and then 10 min cool down.
Compared with my FTP from before I have gone from 242W to 288W. A massive increase of 46W!! Or to put it slightly differently a 20% increase in power.
So now I know this I can make my power training sessions really hurt.
