Plateauing with Training Any recommendations?
Well i had a few questions regarding fitness. Ive been wrapping up my season and a few days i ago i did a 20 min FTP test. After doing all the math my FTP came up to be 230 watts. I weigh 116 lbs so that puts me at 52 kg which gives me 4.42w/kg. Im a Cat5 racer and im a pretty small guy 5'4 ish.
This has been my FTP since like June and ive done intervals like crazy (without a power meter at the time) but it seems like im not improving. Some days i would do three straight days of intervals for an hour (very tiring). Do any of you have any tips or recommendations for training to break out of this plateau? Also i borrowed a friends bike with a power meter to do the test, in reality i don't train with power usually.
I know its getting closer to the winter so ill be mostly working on base mileage but any tips that will point me in the right direction for next spring? Also any comments on my power to wight ratio? Good? bad? mediocre?
Thanks, any help is appreciated
