Although I’ve only just joined the forums, I actually first moved to Sufferlandia 4 years ago.
Back then, I was subjected to my first examination by the Minions Rubber Gloves, and as a then new cyclist, and brand new to indoor training, my FTP started out at 233w.
Over the years I’ve completed many of the plans and videos, getting stronger and fitter.
At the start of this winter season, with an FTP of 274w, the goals were to follow the 12 week advanced road program and hope to get the FTP up as close to 300w as possible, then make it through the Tour as close too maximum effort, for as long as possible…
Victory! I did the training plan replacing week 11 with the Tour and made it through the all the way at Nuclear level!
Post tour, I’ve followed week 12 of the plan, and the 4DP test is complete and the results are in…
By the skin of my teeth, I’ve made it to 300w on my FTP! I’m extremely pleased with that!
So what’s next…
We’ll it has to be doesn’t it… Time to do the Knighthood!
So to officially announce, I’ll be kicking off the Knighthood plan as of tomorrow, with the aim of storming the castle on Saturday 27th March.
Wish me luck!
