So measuring TTE seems fairly obvious: take your power at FTP and see how long you can hold it. In general, expect anywhere from 40-59:59 mins. Is there anything more to it than that? How do you determine “holding it”? A power drop of some sort?
Hypothetically, if I want to “spitball it” because I might not want to measure it in the way I just described, any rules of thumb or guidelines? I realize one answer is “TTE is a metric that WKO4 models for you, so you don’t have to this or that…etc.”, so if the answer is “just use WKO4 or Golden Cheetah”, fine. But we get at FTP (more or less) without needing the software to model it for us, can we do the same with fatigue resistance?
(edit: yes, i’ve read the TP articles and seen Tim Cusick’s video presentation)
