I'm taking the next month as another 'build' month to work on my FTP.
Currently, my FTP is set to 260 and I want to improve solely that for the next month. I've been putting in about 100 miles a week for the past few weeks with most rides at an intensity of about .9 IF. I'm guessing that's probably not the best way to train.
I have about 10 hours a week to train and I would really appreciate it if I could get some advice on what to do to hopefully bump up my FTP and have it continue to grow over the summer.
FWIW, I'm 20, a CAT4 and this is my 2nd season racing. Last season, I wasn't much of a contender and didn't really train seriously at all. I'd like to be able to make it to the 3's either late this season or by the end of the spring next year (more likely).
Thanks for any/all the help!
