I know this is a person to person case, but I am wondering if there is an expected progress during week 7 half monty test of an all purpose training plan.
I am currently doing an advanced all purpose road plan with strength training. Yesterday I did the Half Monty test as requested during week 7 and had a +7 and +5 watts in MAP and FTP being 3% and 2.9% improvement respectively; I would like to have an idea of how good a progress this is. LTHR went a bit down but I am not surprised as I only had time to do the test at night and I find my HR just lags behind when the sun goes down.
An interesting remark here is that since I started the plan strava’s algorithm says I have been loosing form! Yes I was riding harder and longer but that also meant training only in two HR zones: Z4 and Z5; should I ignore this feedback?
