Just completed a Half Monty halfway through a training plan. Was expecting the results to have improved a little since my last one in Sep 20 given that i’ve been finding the workouts getting easier. With my Sep numbers, I was just about able to complete Int 4 of AVDP (i normally use that as an indication of good numbers!) and I completed Revolver last week, hitting all the tgts and it felt ok…
Half Monty today also felt ok, I was well rested and fed, etc, but the results suggested that I reduce my MAP by 7W and my FTP by 19W. Given the way that i’m feeling during the workouts, i think that that would be crazy, so what’s caused such a big error? LTHR was the same in each test.
Having looked at the Sep test, i noticed that i had an ANT+ dropout towards the end of the sustained effort, which i’m sure didn’t help? The connections did re-establish but there was a gap in the data.
That said, if i’m finding the workouts achievable (just), aren’t my numbers about right?
Any thoughts? Obviously, the best way forward is FF but i’m not keen to disrupt the Plan at this time.
