Hi Fellow Sufferlandrians
I did a Half Monty today. The ramp wasn’t so tough, but I hadn’t spent a full hour on the seat since I started riding again - and my butt hurts!
After successfully finishing this test, I went upstairs and opened the laptop - and got an email that told me that confidence was lost. I know. I feel that way all the time, but hoped there would be confidence in my suffering here.
I am pretty confident I rode over the power levels asked for in the app over the ramp, and finished the heart rate section in the levels asked. I was asked in the middle to switch to “Level” so I chose a level in the middle not knowing what to do. I am using a Tacx Neo 2t and an iPhone with the latest OS and version of the app.
However, I had gotten a bogus FTP # earlier from a Kurt Kinetic I was using before the Tacx. My riding partner (and we are often very equal) got an FTP in FulGaz of 185 on the Tacx, while mine on the same test with the Kurt Kinetic was 69! I knew I was out of shape… but… I think that may have messed stuff up. Was that why confidence was lost?
I must admit that test made me suffer, and I would hope I can get some results out of it or it will be disheartening and I will cry big crocodile tears.
Here’s the test results at Strava.
Thanks for helping
