Sometimes, I get a little frustrated with myself. I know I’ve come a long way since I started cycling a year and a half ago, but I’m just not where I want to be. I’ve been putting in the work, but my FTP (functional threshold power) just isn’t budging.
(If you don’t know what FTP is, that’s ok! This video will give you an idea:
I need something different to bust through this plateau. And fast!
So when Team ZF (who happen to be some of my favorite people in all of online biking) offered the Team ZF FTP challenge with Coach Jakub from Pro Cycling Coaching, I jumped on it. I think this is going to help me with a few things:
- Increasing FTP (with the end goal of increasing speed and endurance)
- Staying motivated
- Structured workouts 3 to 4 times a week
- Free Basic Training Peaks Account
- Private Facebook group with the coach and the community
I really want to improve my fitness, so I know I need to change things up a bit. I think these workouts will be just what I need to make some changes and help me get some better fitness habits, too. I’m really looking forward to working with Coach Jakub and the rest of the team.
The Team ZF FTP Challenge is a one-month commitment and a very reasonable $29. I spend way more than that taking my family to McDonald’s, so that’s quite reasonable considering what I could gain from it!
