    It seems like it would make sense to do intervals at a cadence and power that mimic what you're doing on a HC, but I know nothing. Maybe mix it up with Russian steps or something? And surely sticking some sweet spot/tempo 'recovery' stuff would be good to maintain your base fitness.

    But maybe doing longer threshold intervals that dip into VO2 max would be more beneficial. As far as trainerroad stuff goes, have you looked at the crit specific plans? They would presumably offer more short, hard effort specialism.

    Ah. It's a weird one that, I don't know why eBay even has the 'no returns' option because if something's faulty then the seller has to accept it back. Is the seller refusing to refund you the money? I'd take it up with eBay, they tend to side with the buyer. If they won't do it then leave negative feedback and move on I guess. Often the threat of negative feedback is enough for most sellers, I know what I'd do in the seller's position.

    Doesn't the returns policy on the listing state who should pay for returns?

    Got a set if you're still stuck.

    OIC. Thanks again. I'll go and read Joe Friel and stop with all the inane questions.

    Is that 3 hard:1 easy then (rinse, repeat) until tapering? Do you reset your FTP after each easy week?

    Am I being dense here or should your TSS not theoretically stay the same if your FTP is increasing as well, or is it that an increase in base fitness allows you to spend more time at threshold and beyond? I'm being dense I think.

    That's what I need to hear, thanks. I suppose it's inevitable that fewer long rides, plus having a correct FTP will have an effect on CTL.

    Ha. The graph was so pretty before I corrected the FTP. I feel like I'm training more, but TSS from 1hr indoor rides doesn't really compare to the 4 hour hilly midweek rides I was able to do in the summer.

    I'll throw an extra midweek session in and see if that helps. I'm like a moth to a flame when it comes to data. I don't know quite what it means, but I'm fairly sure I could be working harder.

    Too much information isn't good for me. Maybe I should just stop worrying and ride on feel.

    The mFTP graph in WKO4 is really satisfying though. 30w gain over the summer.
