Before I started TR, I would do the dreaded 20 min outdoor test for FTP. Started TR 2 months ago and the ramp test showed an FTP 20 watts or so lower, BUT that seemed accurate for indoor workouts, and my higher outdoor FTP seemed accurate for outdoor workouts too.
So, I lived with 2 FTPs. Now, I think I have grown stronger. So, I’ll redo the ramp test, but outdoors, would the 8min test be OK? I HATE the 20 min test.
Also when I import an outdoor ride to TR, I edit the FTP in that to my outdoor FTP, so that the TSS would reflect accurately.
And, if I import an indoor ride to TodaysPlan, I edit the FTP there to match my indoor FTP [TP has ftp set as my outdoor FTP].
Is this the correct way of handling this issue?
