Bike Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test result: 263 Watts

Almost looks like I know what I’m doing 🙂

Test on the bike went very well today…new FTP number is 263 Watts…up from 249 Watts 3 months ago: 

…and spot on my prediction/goal of 260-265W from yesterday …so cool!

What it all means, and deep analysis to follow…also trying to get that run test in later in the week once I let the legs recover a bit from the all-out test today…I’m going to feel it in the morning

…the long and the short of it is, that ‘by the numbers’ I’m probably in the best cycling ‘condition’ of my life…well at least the last 15 years that I’ve been tracking workouts in detail…so could be ‘ever’

…how’s that for a laugh-out-loud position to be in at 56 🙂
