    Automatically updating your FTP lets us calculate your fitness level and workout zones so you don’t have to worry about anything.
    Mine is set to auto and I have done rides over 30 mins so should it expire?
    • On: your fitness level and FTP value will be calculated again the next time you do an FTP test or a session lasting more than 30 minutes in which you exceed your current FTP. Your new FTP value expires in two months.
    • Off: your fitness level will never be updated and your FTP will only change if you do an FTP test or if you manually change its value. Your FTP value will never expire.
    Auto FTP update

    I sometimes have similar problems. Thankfully the overhead fan controls are within reach while on the bike and the floor fan has a remote.

    Sigh. The London KISS EUR course today looks like it might be well suited for me. But my cold seems to be getting worse rather than better. I'm probably not going to make it. 4 days off the bike and counting...

    Better 4/5 days than a month due to ignoring a worsening illness

    They do have previous form in replying with nonsense initially - very frustrating! However, in my experience if you persevere you may eventually get an answer from them that makes some sense!

    I did a 3 lap flat London race tonight (something to do with Flanders?). Felt like I was cycling through treacle and not as smooth as normal. Started off fast with the main group but just wasn't feeling good, HR up high, legs heavy, a bit of headache, so I dropped back and picked up someone going at a pace that was OK for me. Together we started to pick off the early fliers until about 1/2 way into the ride I had to do a Tom Dumoulan :eek: By the time I got back on I was looking to just give up as I was now down in 47th out of about 58. Anyway, pootled for a bit, found something in my legs and picked up a couple of guys to work with. in the end it turned out to be a good session :okay: Bit concerned by my HR being so high at 177 average - peeps are going down with various bugs at the office so wondering if I've picked something up too hence why not feeling it tonight xx(

    Some times if i dont feel right i can spend little as 5 minutes on the trainer to know i cant do it then i would leave it for a day or two, just have a day or 2 rest after you should feel better unless you have man flu.
