As the season wanes, I’m trying to do an assessment of and comparison to this point last year. Started using Xert this spring so less than a year of total use but ~2 seasons worth of power data. I’m finishing this season with the same TP as this point last season but with ~3kj higher HIE. I know its been said that HIE and LTP are inversely correlated, but my LTL is higher now than at this point last season but my LTP is 10w lower.
Less long rides(at lower power) and more intensity this year as I had less time/week so it makes sense the shift, but the TL doesn’t quite fit. My LTL did peak higher last year and was on the decline by this point and its still on the upward swing this year as I continued to train for CX. On a broader picture assessment, should I have pushed or pulled my TP more this year and going into next year based on my current signature. I’m near the top of the range for HIE 28-29 for ~252wTP(~1200wPP)
