Well, Box Hill on Zwift kicked me in the face pretty good for at least 20 minutes and now Strava is showing an estimated FTP of 159. Seems close to the right amount of bad.

And on that note: my watts/kg is kind of sad as well, but that is highly correlated to me weighing 111 kgs at the present moment.
