FTP Test #3

It’s been exactly six weeks since my last FTP test. Well that’s a lie… It’s been less than an hour! But the test before that was six weeks ago. I wasn’t looking forward to it, I was pretty sure that I wasn’t fresh enough for it but even with that I managed to put out a descent performance.

This time out it was as follows:
NP 277W ,av. P 277W ,av. HR 169, max HR 182

Last time it was:
NP 264W ,av. P 265W ,av. HR 158, max HR 172

Giving me an FTP of 263W – 12W in 6 weeks. Not so bad.

So, with a test every 6 weeks, the results have been(20 min av. Power): 252W, 265W, 277W – very steady increase. I’m pretty happy with that.

The flip side of this is that all my standard VO2 and Sweet Spot sets get harder again.

My sweet spots are now at 218w -> 255w
My 12 x 0:30 @ 130% FTP are now at 341W
My 2:00 VO2 max intervals are now at 302W… ouch!
