Trust the Plans - they really work

6 weeks through the intermediate time for a HM. Wasn’t feeling confident going in but this is so much easier to pace than Full Frontal which is always a struggle.

Numbers in from HM surprised me:

MAP up 14% 310 to 352
FTP up 5% 262 to 276

The plans have really helped to address my biggest weakness (sustained efforts) and they now feel more comfortable inside and outside.

Having workouts at reduced intensity really helps keep just the right amount of fatigue. Having said that Nine Hammers at 100% next week will be interesting!

Thank you Sufferfest team!


Hey @washsaint, thank you for sharing this with us. These are some awesome gains. All that in only six weeks means you really put some work into your training. Congratulations.

Let us hear about your experience when you finish. Good luck.

Hi @P.Weikamp

Nine Hammers this morning was a total bust! Did 2 hammers and gave up…wasn;t feeling it at all and HR was going through the roof. So redid it tonight with more of a mental focus and got through it (albeit at 90%) but if I ever see that workout again it will be too soon!
