You down with FTP?

It's pained me not to go outside today, with temperatures hitting the HIGH 30's in Boston. However, I needed to test my Functional Threshold Power (FTP) once again to see how things are going. The results were somewhat encouraging, with a 20-minute average of 311 Watts. Subtract 5% to get a FTP value of 295.5 Watts. Hopefully I can bring that number up a little bit before the season, but I'm much more concerned with topping off my shorter efforts (5 sec, 1 min, 5min) for the upcoming ECCC races. For that purpose, we have Natan here at BU. He's got a mean sprint right now, but I'll have his number the next time we cross those much-feared Dover town lines...
