I’ve seen several topics like this and I guess most of us have gone through it. Today I did FF as part of the HM FF Double week.
Here’s the background:
- a few weeks ago I crushed The Chores hitting power and cadence targets with no issues (my weakness is sustained efforts)
- Decided to test as the numbers should be higher and chose a rest week to do HM-FF Double Week
- Wednesday: HM Results MAP (+ 7W) and FTP (+6W)
-Thursday: 3rd Covid-19 (Shot)
-Friday: Side Effects
-Saturday: Primers went fine
-Sunday: FF Results: MAP (- 8W), NM and AC also negative and FTP same as HM
As I know from a few weeks back that my MAP cannot be the same (The Chores being ‘easy’) I deleted FF hoping my profile will revert to HM Results but it didn’t. I then manually updated the power bringing MAP to HM level and NM and AC as before.
My question is - and I hope a coach can give his/her input; what’s the best way forward?
*Since FF is primordial for improvement using the APP, its kind of tough having power levels measured in a day that might not have been the best. Of course, if I didn’t have that ‘The Chores’ experience just days before I would assume those are my numbers.
