FTP is just a number used to calibrate training, but many cyclists see it it as a status symbol, and seek a constantly improving value as validation. Why does FTP occasionally decline, and what do you do next?
RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) is a subjective assessment of how hard you feel like you’re riding. It’s a great way to maintain structure during outside rides when a power meter is not available. TrainerRoad offers all of our Outside Workouts in an RPE-based version.
TrainerRoad Outside Workouts allow you to maintain the structure and quality of your training plan, while enjoying the beauty of the great outdoors. How do these workouts compare to their indoor counterparts?

For reasons both physiological and psychological, this isn’t the most beneficial path.
