Did the ramp test today, and thought I crushed it. Until I got the result. Went from 248 to 251 (I weigh 146).
I did the same test on March 5 last year and went from 248 to 256. I did 5 seconds more on today’s test than last year.
What’s weird however, is that according to Strava - and TR - I PR’d my power from 4:30 through 10:30 compared to my previous PR on the same ramp test last year. All my interval numbers look nearly identical. I did backpedal at the end when I blew up, so not sure if that might have skewed anything.
So not sure how I PR the power and come up 5 watts shy on the FTP. Thoughts?
I mean, I’m happy with the lifetime PR through that power band, but bummed to see the FTP not pushing through.
