So come on, own up, who's breaking the deadly sins? Give us your protocols.

I started off with the gold standard a 25 mile tt. I also found at roughly the same time that the 40 min uphill part of my commute (if done hard) pretty much matched that value. I also found that if I do 3x20 up a hill where I do the first one as hard as possible, then the average of the second and third also gave me the same figure.

Here's the link to Alex's blog where he talks about the sins.:- ... -sins.html

Hope you don't mind Alex?
