In 2018, CTL plateaus. My first A race was the secon weekend in June.





Notice how the ATL(pink) drops(valleys) faster than the CTL? Thats what you are trying to leverage when trying to peak. I assume you started your season last year around mid june as well and felt super strong? Your TSB peaked at that point before your CTL dropped too much. The main issue with your chart for this year is that your TSB has been hovering in the 0 to -10 range which is the dreaded gray zone. Not enough training to stimulate fitness gains(increased CTL) while not recovering enough to be fresh. https://www.trainingpeaks.com/blog/a...tress-balance/
