I do a variation of tabatas during the early spring to get into race shape when we have limited races. I do either 10 minutes with 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off, or i do 20 minute with the same set up. I will often do 2 sets of the 20 minutes and 4 sets of the 10. I just sprint for the 30 seconds, and coast for 30 seconds. I will often average right around my ftp for the interval set, and the np will be significantly higher than what i can actually achieve, but this does not matter considering how normalized power values hold little weight for efforts under 40-60 minutes.
