I am exhausted after a test. Additional JRA is always optional. It's not whether I can do it, it's whether I want to do it. No use burning out.
just do your 20 minutes.
if 20 minutes hard as you can ruins your week, you probably need to do a bunch more 20 mins at 100%.
Thanks for the input guys! Glad to see some good ole agreement in the 33

I picked up 15-20w by just having Quarq replace my faulty PM with a new one...amazing what that can do for you!
I was told by my coach that he clips my tests to show his other athletes what a proper FTP test should look like. Learn from the best, kids!
Otoh, i put out weak sauce watts, so there's also that.
Training Peaks has a beta now for their new software: http://app.trainingpeaks.com
Tried the old version last month, didn't like the 90's retro feel. This one looks better.

I tried the beta version yesterday too, I like it better than the old one.
Demain, on roule!
good data matters. it is not simply about adjusting software -- that is advice that sounds great to people who may be less informed about power but misses the long-term point.
If you calibrate your SRM and find it was reading 7w low, do you go back and adjust your rides between today and your last calibration, assuming an increasing linear offset of error?
Or do you just adjust your **** going forward and live with the marginal errors.
We both know power numbers aren't going to win races, they are for training. How "important" can they be.
I assume we disagree. I don't put power on my primary screen when racing, though, so that shows my perspective on this.
If you find errors in calibration, it won't be 7 watts low, constant across the board. Rather it will be a certain percentage off from the true slope.
Being 7 watts low means your zero point is off by 7 watts, and you can do whatever you want with it.
