Hi there -
I am seeking some help as i have been getting a more and more worried by my TSS numbers.
This is NOT in ANY way meant to be bragging!
But i have grown increasingly concerned esp listneing to @chad discuss it on ep 46 of AACC.
My 6-wk avg is 820 - but from all i have learnt listening to hours of podcasts this seems WAY too high?
The thing is, i feel fine and my fitness seems to be improving …
• I am just finishing SSB mid vol.
• I take a day off per week.
• Do double rides on easy days
• And a long 4-5hr ride on sundays at a steady but manageable output (0.7-8 IF).
I am getting increasingly paranoid about injury or over training etc but my RHR and sleep etc are all better than ever and i feel good.
What could the high numbers be down to in anyone’s opinion?
my possible thoughts:
a) need to re assess FTP as might be set too low and thus giving invalid data
b) i come from running and find the type of non-impact training involved in cycling easier to handle ?
b) i can just seem to handle more? ( i am self-employed/single etc)
again please don’t misconstrue any of this as boasting …
part of me is ‘if it ain’t broke …’ etc
BUT i am getting disconcerted the more i learn about TSS and what others do …
thanks in advance to any replies!
