I have just done an ftp after ssb1 mid volume plan. It was my first training plan so I was hoping for big improvements.
I have tested again today and my ftp was just the same as my first test. Difference was just 1w. My ftp is 230 and I am 63 kg(139 lbs) 182 cm(6 feet) tall. I feel like I have a big room for improvement. I was feeling really good during training. Even over unders were quite easy and I was even thinking about raising ftp slightly, because training was not that hard. Today ftp test was definitely all out effort for today. I was having hard time catching a breath and my legs felt like stones at the end.
The only explanation that make sense is that 2 days ago I have my 18 birthday party. I m trying to not drink alcohol especially vodka (which is almost a national drink of my country) but It was my coming of age party so I was drinking quite a bit. Also I was sleeping very poorly last 2 days so I am really tired.
So I’m thinking about redoing my ftp test, because I feel I can do much better. So, what is the best time to redo a ftp ramp test. In 2 days or maybe I should rest for longer. Or maybe I should just stick to an old ftp?
