    Why do an hour FTP test...contrary to popular wisdom (and the creator of FTP) it’s not an hour...

    Because it's a benchmark at the start of a training block.
    My calculated FTP from a 20min test and the 1hr test also don't align so it's a useful comparison to do both. I repeat the 20min through my cycle but only do the 1hr at the beginning and end of the training block.

    Fair enough, I just can not tell you how many times I have read the creator of term/concept of FTP complain about people misunderstanding of the concept.

    Poor cycling week with only two rides indoors due to horrible weather and then putting my back out.
    Set an indoor 40km PB just as a bit of a challenge.

    48 miles for the week, 325 for the month.

    Last day of November finally gave me good enough weather to get outside, great to be on the roads and in the countryside again.

    Allowed me to tick off my annual mileage goal of 5,200 which gives me a nice weekly average.

    5,213 miles for the year
    384 for the month
    58 for the week
