Training with Power

28 05 2009

So im heading out for my second race with the PowerTap today and im looking forward to it. Training with Power keeps things exciting as you always have something to look forward to looking at when you get back. Its kinda like getting results back after doing one of those expensive lactate tests. 

Im gonna be mostly focusing on the positives of my findings but so far here are my inital downsides of training with Power

1 you have to pay alot for it!!

2 you need to do alot of reading to know what your doing.

3 you need to download your data and examine it after each ride

4you have to actually train hard as the number dont lie!!!


Overall the first week has been good. I have been reading alot and examing my 4 files so far. My inital FTP is 285 at 66.5kgs.

I think i can do another test hopefully in the next 2 weeks to get more accurate readings then set out a training plan.

Il keep you posted
