I’ve cobbled together a very basic script that will tell you your “live” achieved FTP during TR’s ramp test. All you have to do is put in your current FTP and hit the “start” button at the same time that your ramp test starts.
23rd Jan edit: Over my morning tea today I’ve prettified it, have another look:
(There’s a simulate button so you can get the idea without having to wait for the counter to tick up second by second!)
Some people might find this a useful motivational tool - others might find the opposite, and that it makes them stop trying once they’ve hit the target they had in mind. Feel free to look away if you’re in the latter camp!
To calculate the live FTP I’m using 75% of the past 60 seconds’ average power. Average power calculated just based on seconds in each zone. E.g. I believe that 10 seconds at 200W and 50 seconds at 206W gives an average of (200 * 10 + 206 * 50) / 60 = 205W.
