FTP test last night after an off/on holiday hiatus. I shot myself in the foot with a massive greasy lunch and no pre-ride nutrition, so the number is about 30W lower than I was expecting for late fall. If my workouts are easier than I think they should be, I'll adjust accordingly.

30 w is a lot! But you're a bigger guy, right? So maybe not as much as it would be for me as a %??? (145 lbs here)

More rest week stuff, screwing around on the TT bike for 75 min by feel. Will try to get 2-3 hours of unstructured road (or MTB) riding in tomorrow, off Sunday.

Monday opener for a new block, FTP test on Tuesday, PTO day Wednesday when I will hit 6+ hours of continuous z2 and then laze all day before cooking dinner.

I am convinced that bringing my shoes and kit to work all but guarantees that I'll be swamped so I can't even eat my lunch, much less have time for a lunch ride.
