Gotta Love That Power Meter!

While in Myrtle Beach Friday through Monday I managed to re-test my Functional Threshold Power (FTP) with a couple 20-minute efforts. I did the first one at or just below my 'set' FTP and the second all out. Here's the results:

Late-November: FTP 285 (very beginning of my 2008 training season/de-trained)
December 22: FTP 302 (four weeks into base period including regular tempo work along with endurance rides)

That's a 5% increase in one month. I credit my handy, durable and full-time SRM power meter! Seeing real results has never been easier.
