CYCLING (velodrome)
20 minute warm-up; avg speed 20mph; avg HR 149 (established VO2 max of 46)
20 minute FTP Test; 6 miles; avg speed 21.3 mph avg HR 166
4 x 200 meter sprint
1 x 500 meter
10 minute cool down

VO2 max of 46 is excellent for age 50-59. The power meter dropped numerous times in the FTP test. HR and speed were more accurate. I’ve learned the track has difficulty recording/tracking some power meter and GPS equipment for some reasons unknown to me.  I will repeat the FTP test on the road and on a stationary trainer.
