Thank you All.
It seems most of us and others I know are classified as All-Rounders there.
I have quite good 5s and 1min bests relative to my other bests and still an all-rounder.
According to a traditional Coggan table, I would be classified as a sprinter, matching my always classification in Sufferfest.
I would be curious to biopsy my muscular fibers, I am quite skinny to be a proper sprinter (181 cm / 68-69 kg). I don’t know where the power comes to push a sprint at a top-level to my age. On the other hand, I am always struggling with sustained efforts.
I found the ICU app interesting to keep track of my progression. I am still using Sufferfest but after some SUF plans, I decided to personalize myself the plan for the next 3 months. Let’s see the result, I have the hypothesis that I need a higher volume at Z2 combined with sustained intervals. I set my TSS in the range of 500-700, about 10-12 hours/week, in 3 by1 traditional week periodization. I will have 2 Suf indoor specific workouts stimulating FTP and MAP, plus a Saturday with some stimulus (usually tempo or sub-threshold). The rest will be recovery or Z2, plus a Cadence builds after a strength workout to the maintenance of off-bike strength training.
@emacdoug you have to adjust settings for “Power Spikes” in ICU. The same happened to me. To avoid that I set the threshold to 300%, the standard value is 20% and it will “cut” quick surges as in 5s and 1min if the power raises too high too fast.
