Just completed the Full Frontal - a couple of thoughts.
- Definitely need to practice the level mode and know how long it takes for the bike to adjust and how long it takes me to ramp up cadence. I didn’t quite nail it, but got within about 100 of what I was hoping for.
- I hate sprinting - the recovery hurts.
- Keep a bucket handy.
I came out as a sprinter, but that was expected. I’m a big guy at the moment but don’t want to be. Historically, I was a clydesdale - I could put solid work in, and go all day. That’s what I want to get back to.
It suggested that my weakness was in sustained effort (again, no surprise there) and that I should focus on Angels, Hell Hath no Fury and The Way Out to improve my weaknesses. When I added in the all round road training plan, I was hoping there would be a focus on my weaknesses but it doesn’t look like there is.
Am I missing something? Or is the plan the same plan for everyone and they adjust the effort of the FTP building parts of each session to work on the weaknesses?
My second question is that now I’ve done the 4DP, does this mean that EVERY session apart from recovery rides is now going to hurt as much as the FF test?
