Cycling Memes and Jokes

Totally true, and funny as a result. Opens the conversation to maybe explain why that’s the case and help riders thinking die or do is the only way.

I’ve been doing a massive catchup on the fasttalk podcasts and one thing that struck me was that you should just do your tests (20min, 8 min, ramp or god forbid 60 min) as they come. No need to stress about them and do a taper and go in fresh. All they are for is to set your training zones. Nothing more. If you rest and taper like it is your A race you are just going to pay for it later. You don’t need to know what your best ftp is, you need to know what your general training ftp is.

I think this actually a barrier to good ftp test performance.


#138

Yup, overemphasis on what should be seen as a simple step in the training process.


#139

It’s a short workout plus good fun! :sweat_smile:

Indeed. I have been working to decrease the importance and (negative) anticipation of my ramp tests. I do them blind (only watching cadence) and just try to take it like any other hard workout. Fuel right, come in with a positive mindset, give it everything I have, take the FTP number at the end and then move on in my training schedule.

That was hilarious but I agree i am also team Nate.


#142

Soooo true
