Peloton. Yeah boi

On a good streak as of late. Proudly setting PRs with each ride. My results are nothing for a fit person to be proud of but for a degenerate drunken stoner with very few fucks left to give if any I’m doing work. I’m treating it like Mario cart and chasing my ghost cart beating that last run. It’s all I can do for now. Someday I’ll laugh at how pathetic I was on this date. Until then cheers mofos.
do the ftp if you haven't already. after that you get to see how lazy you are being.
 
Don’t even know what that is.
It stands for Functional Threshold Power and tests the maximum output you can hold for a certain period of time. If you search rides by FTP, there will be a bunch of rides that come up, but look for the 20 minute long test rides.

They do suggest you do an FTP warmup before taking the test which is supposed to prepare you for the 20 minute one. Be warned, the test essentially a 20 minute max effort.

Hahahahahaha.

I will put that on my calendar. I need some prep.
 
Late response to shoes: Louis Garneau Multi Air Flex with SPD cleats

My apartment has the commercial bikes, meaning toe cages/SPD

Doing my 2nd FTP test in two weeks FUN FUN FUN

I switched mine over to cage / SPD as well. I've heard all kinds of bad things about LOOK cleats, and I already had SPD shoes from when I started at my old apt complex, so it was an easy decision to change.

For perspective it’s about all I can do to properly finish a 20 minute beginner ride. Anywhere from 90-100 is “output” or whatever. Just hit 100 for first time on 20 minute beginner ride with the Nigerian chick

That's the beauty of the FTP test. You go at your own pace and it's a workout plan that's curated to your fitness level based on your final output in that test ride.

Once you know your zones, they don't call out resistance at all, just recommended cadence and it's up to you to put enough resistance on to match the zone they're calling out. The test itself blows, but I highly recommend starting Power Zone - I have found it's really great to have a structured plan, then throw in the theme rides on occasion when I get bored.
