Hello fellow sufferlandrians!
I’ve been cycling for a year now and really like Sufferfest. However, I’m struggling to find my next training plan.
I live in the Netherlands without any hills , therefore I’d like to get faster on the flats (raw power)
I just completed the couch to crusher plan. After the 6 week mark I added weekly 3h endurance rides, which I really enjoy doing.
Yesterday I completed my FF test and these are the results:
NM: 1277W (was 1173)
AC: 526W (431)
MAP: 337W (301)
FTP: 264W (232)
I’m an attacker and my weakness is sustained.
My half monty results after 6 weeks was 267W FTP and MAP 338W. Although ramp tests are never really accurate for me as I tend to be quite strong anaerobicly.
For my next training plan I was thinking of the following options:
- Ftp block special focus followed up with all purpose road
- (metric) century plan as it has long endurance rides which will train my endurance capacity
- time trial plan. Even though I don’t have any intentions on riding one. But does have a strong focus on long sustained efforts
What do you think would be best to improve my sustained weakness and get faster on the flats?
