After my last Full Frontal, I started training with my updated power targets. After a couple of weeks in I felt that I was not getting enough stress (basically by looking at intervals.icu / Strava and my own RPE assessment). Basically, the workouts were asking for Z3-Z4 sometimes and I was in fact at Z1-Z2. I read that as a good sign as that would indicate better fitness. I knew I could push a lot more.
So I decided to bump up FTP a tad (effectively 8.5%) and then the training sessions started to land on the right HR zones. A few weeks after I did a Half Monty and I was able to reach the FTP goal I have set. I was super happy about it.
Now that my FTP matches what I established earlier, I have two options:
1- Stick to the current base FTP for the next weeks until the end of the training block (6 weeks)?
2- Give it another bump because I feel I have good momentum?
Have anyone experienced the same and care to share some advice? I would be happy to follow approach #2 and lower it if I feel it is too much. My current bump is at 10% (I was feeling a bit sporty/ambitious).
