Tranistioning to Road Racing Power and Fatiugue Profile

Below is my first power profile since exiting base miles phase and starting to do some test races.  The injury to my left leg is holding up well this year.  I am starting to get back to my normal pre-injury power levels.

I have done no structured training for 5 seconds to 30 second power.  5 second power has jumped up from racing a few times.  I am happy with my power out to 10 seconds.  The drop from 10 seconds to 20 seconds needs some work.

30 second power is looking good at 552w.  From 30 seconds to 1 minute the drop is huge.  I need to really focus on this area after finishing my next FTP block.

20 minute power is still very low.  I tired to test 20 minute power last week with terrible results.  I have come down with a nasty cold and been off the bike for 4 days.

Since I have not been able to ride all weekend I figured I would pull my fatigue data from WKO+ and see if it matches my perception of what I need to work on next.  L7 is looking good for this time of year.  L6 is terrible my 1′ power drop needs some work.  L5 is very solid and power is holding out to around 8 minutes.  L4 is low, but this is to be expected since I have done very few structured L4 workouts.  I need to get a very solid L4 block done in the next 4 weeks to get my 20 minute power backup to 260w.
