My ftp was set a while back during a particularly fruitful and fitful period.My 30km freebie from a few nights ago reminded me what it was like to sweat. My FTP is 262 from memory, a bit high for current fitness as I haven't pushed too hard since my op.
I am still behind, but rather than sensibly resetting it and making reasonable gains, I have chosen to leave it too high and stubbornly attack my workouts.
Science tells me this is the wrong way to do it. Common sense tells me this is the wrong way to do it. Yet I continue on in a glory of self flagellation.
