Hi! I just started the 18 Weeks of Sweet Spot training plan and completed my 20 min FTP test (indoors) and had surprising results. I averaged 201 W over the 20 min tests, but paced it poorly, averaging 215 W the first 10 min and 187 W the next ten minutes. I was trying to pace the effort to be around 215 W which would match a tough 20 min hill climb I did a few months ago. Using the 95% formula my FTP should be set at 191 W. Two weeks ago, I did a very tough outdoor ride where I averaged 201 W NP for an hour and 200 W NP over 90 min (using a different power meter). I didn’t feel great during the 20 min indoor test and was wondering if you think I should retest or just put my FTP at 201 W?
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks team!
