  • The Test

    The Test

    Yesterday, I did my first FTP Test, and today I am quietly pleased. The last time this number was registered by the Zwift software, it was 135.Β When I began cycling, I believe I was somewhere around the 125 mark. That was at the end of December, so to have seen a 10% improvement over that […]
