    Hello there
    I have been training cycling (MTB) for almost 10 years, and by power for the last 6 years.
    I am 40 years old, 80 kg, and my FTP is 330W
    So, to my question:
    My only training is the following:
    During autumn/ winter. 2 or 3 x 20 min. SST training, and during the rest of the year, I try to break my record on a hilly course (62 km, which takes about 2 hr. 30 min to complete in a" race-fashioned speed" with a NP of 270-290W for the duration of the ride.

    My goal, is races with the same duration, terrain and climbs

    Is this "ok" or is it to much of a mix-up of zones and intensity??
    Should I be more structured to "gain more" (One easy day, and one sprinting day?)
    Any input or comment is very welcome!

    your CTL sure seems to significantly increase in the last fortnight of the chart. Looks like it jumps about 20points... which is a horrendous increase (no sustainable). unless you've set your FTP too low...

    Thank you for your reply!
    I understood that the raise was not sustainable, so I backed off a bit during summer, so here is the updated pmc:
