Hope everyone had a great weekend,
Currently in week 10 of 18 Wk SS plan and after reading the great success & increase Theodore made in his plan by slightly increasing his FTP throughout the plan when he noticed decreases in HR it got me thinking as I’ve noticed a significant decrease in my HR zones for the past few weeks now. I"m riding right at my sweet spot power limit and my average HR for last week’s intervals was 22 beats lower than my max HR for SS, actually the average was in the low end of my tempo zone. Additionally I’ll add that my average HR for each interval got lower & lower, by 1-2 beats. I’ll also add that for my 3hr SS Group Ride last weekend I achieved the prescribed TSS in 2hrs with NP bang on my SS power limit and HR average again in the low end of my tempo range.
Very pleased & encouraged with what I’m seeing & feeling, should I re-test or make any adjustment or just keep on FTFP’ing?
