Yes, fitness tests will help you train at the correct intensities and track your progress. There are fitness tests at the start of your plan and then every 8 weeks.
Functional Threshold Power (FTP) bike power tests every 8 weeks. These tests are a great measure of your progress and can also be used to set a realistic race pacing strategy on the bike.
There is a run threshold test every 8 weeks during an active recovery week. Just make sure the conditions are similar for each subsequent test, so you're comparing apples with apples.
NOTE: If you have used our online calculators then we recommend not to tick "automatically apply new threshold changes" as this will default your zones to an automatic Training Peaks setting that may have the incorrect number of zones and values. However you can update your threshold values manually.
