Just a question on your FTP - do you test it via a 20 min test, or do you do it over a full hour?
And do you run the test on the trainer, or outdoors?
I have been working with a coach: http://drpcoaching.blogspot.com.au/ since about October 2015. I can recommend this service if you, like me, are time strapped and want to do all your coaching by email. I am no longer a client but I have learned a lot from the experience.
Mt ftp figures have been arrived at by his assessment of all my ride/race data ( via Garmin file with power) including a couple of 20 minute protocol rides on the trainer.
The figures he arrived at have been pretty much confirmed by the Trainingpeaks numbers also.
