Title says it all.
LT Wattage: 255W
LT HR: 190
LT W/Kg: 3.74
Aerobic Threshold: 160W
He basically jumped the wattage by 50 every 4 minutes.
My FTP was set at 270, and now I've moved stuff down to reflect LT Wattage. Coach was a little upset that I didn't go into the pain cave for long enough to get 10mm lactate, but that should happen when I do the next test in 6 months.
He said it's a good thing that I train with power because my HR skyrockets a bunch and would make it really hard to train with just HR.
I had a good talk with him regarding muscle recruitment, energy source recruitment, and his training philosophy.
He wants me to ride a bunch at or below my aerobic threshold since that's where you're doing fat utilization, and his rationale is that you want to be able to be in your aerobic threshold when you're sitting in the pack, and training here will bring that up, so whenever I'm not doing an interval, I'm supposed to be riding at or below aerobic threshold to push it up.
It's weird because my FTP was set higher, and I'd successfully been doing 2x20's at this wattage (and I told him that), but I'm going to let him do his job and I'm going to listen since I trust him. The next few days' prescription looks easy in comparison to what I was doing earlier.
Lets see what happens to my body over the next few months.
