Checking my power profile for this month, it’s a bit weird.
I’m currently revisiting aerobic mileage plus strength development plus some road racing (ok.. all of 2 races), so one would expect my 5 min and FTP values to be increasing, and my 5second and 1 min values to be dropping, or at least maintaining. Instead, I’m getting the opposite.
Perhaps it’s my fast take offs at traffic lights (or more like suddenly hitting the pedals after a stint of not pedalling ie slacking off) and attempts to power over small lumps in the road? My legs certainly don’t feel as though their neuromuscular capacity is increasing! In fact they feel incredibly slow and dead at the moment. Go figure.
