Follow-Me: Saturday Edition

Thanks to Toronto runner and all-around fantastic blogger Carmy for kicking off Follow-Me Tuesday (or at least that’s what I’m calling it) with Sweat Pink Canada bloggers!

It’s February! Oh goodness.

FTP Test The first exciting thing was of course my Functional Threshold Power (FTP) test on Saturday! This is ridiculously exciting because it’s pretty much the most important benchmarking for cycling fitness, which includes the… Read more →
