End of season FTP

Asking a question out of curiosity. Last Tuesday I did an FTP Field Test out on the road after completion of the Road Race Inteval Plan. No racing, just training is search of a 4.5 wkg FTP. I am 49 and weigh 148lbs. During the test I did 306 avg watts 307 normalized watts.

Since I felt motivated this week, I did a long tempo ride Tuesday then decided to participate in 2
short zwift races with 10-15 minutes between them. The first one was 25:21 and I did 291 avg watts and 303 normalized. The second race was 20:48 and I did 290 avg watts and 297 normalized watts.

So, what is my FTP and W/KG? I am thinking 4.3?

Now, time to shut it completely down for some rest!

Your 20 minute field test effort was 306 and your Zwift races back that number up pretty well. The first one was a little longer than 20 minutes and not going to repeat that effort the second time. So pretty confident that your FTP would be around 291 watts which makes your W/KG 4.3

Enjoy your rest!
