That’s a great question but honestly I don’t know… I feel like I gotten stronger. Both Garmin stat. and my FTP went up but that’s just from indoor because to me riding outdoor is totally different. There’s just no way, I can be certain unless I can go out and ride right now.
One thing I can tell you for sure is during this 16 weeks, I really got bored (tired/ burnout?) and sick of riding. Those back to back to back ride was hard (Friday, Sat and Sun 2+ hrs. ride) both mentally/ physically and at time I just wanted to stop and quit altogether. And in fact, three rides I have to dial down my FTP just to finish the ride. (wish adaptive training was a thing like TR)
Anyway, I’m going to start a new plan soon and this time I might just dial back (days and time I ride) a little.
