There’s power in big TITS!

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I had been streaking with more TITS. Before my streaking began, my FTP (functional threshold power) was 214 watts. Last Tuesday marked day 50 of my bike streak. I wanted to do a FTP test to see how big TITS translates to FTP. Guess what?! No surprise that the more time you spend in the saddle, the stronger you get. But what did surprise me was how MUCH stronger I have truly become.

I was expecting to see my power increase by a few watts, but certainly not by 15 watts. Yes, my FTP jumped from 214 watts to 229 watts. So proof in the pudding…there’s power in big TITS!

Moral of the story…the more you cycle, the more powerful you become. Since 2020 has been cancelled (personal opinion at this point), I’ve decided to really focus on my cycling this year. It translates well to run strength as well, so for me, it is a win-win! Gotta go hop on the saddle and grow my TITS!

  1. That is a HUGE increase-congratulations!! I’m so glad that you’re enjoying making and meeting your own goals since the race season is cancelled. Do you have any plans to hit up some lakes for swimming this summer? Or today if you’re as brave as Kendra K? 🙂

    1. Thanks Amy! Our pool is opening tomorrow, so we are going to venture back to swim laps. We have a LONG bike ride planned for the end of June as long as the weather cooperates and it is safe enough to visit my parents, that is our BIG goal at this point. 💛

  2. That’s awesome! Agree, more cycling is hugely beneficial for tri training! I feel like I have finally increased my riding enough to hopefully see some progress soon.
