Looking for some general feedback.
Just to put this into perspective. I’ve been using TP to track data for the last 6 years. I have a lot. I’ve also been tested for both my run and bike thresholds and Vo2’s with proper equipment in a lab type scenario.
Occasionally, maybe once every six months, TP suggests an increase based on an actual Time Trial or Race effort. These suggestions are small, 2 or 3 watts (So I know I’m not bullshitting myself either way). I know Garmin suggests Vo2 increases but I’ve actually never been able to simulate lab efforts on a run or bike race for Vo2. I’m also aware that Vo2 max is not something that you can’t actually increase much.
I use these number purely for training, I don’t race based on numbers, I race because of the training I’ve done with the numbers.
My question is therefore, should we be updating these numbers as suggested, or should we be updating these numbers at a given time. By given time I mean after a 12 week block or at the end of a season etc.
