I did 5.1 yesterday and thought it was great. Just the right level of challenge. I think I will do another FTP test after this week. I thought the week one workouts were really hard, but they haven’t been as difficult for me the last couple of weeks. I love that the workouts push me harder than I would normally go if left to my own devices.
Does anyone use TrainerRoad instead of Zwift? I’ve just signed up for a month to try it out. I was disappointed to learn (right after I signed up) that you can’t import workouts from TrainingPeaks. TR seems to give me much more accurate cadence info, and not so many huge swings in power numbers based on the very short practice ride I did. But if I can’t import workouts I’m not sure it does me any good.
I definitely want to continue training with @Coach_Theia but I need to get my data sorted out if I’m to get the most out of it. I’d really rather not buy a new trainer right now. On the plus side, I’m getting pressure mapping for my saddle done today! Hooray!
