PE=Perceived Effort/Exertion E=easy
CP=Critical Power L=long
AeT=Aerobic endurance threshold MP=marathon pace
LT=Lactate threshold T=threshold
VT=Ventilatory threshold I=interval
AT=anaerobic threshold R=repetition velocity
OBLA=onset of blood lactate accumulation
ATP=adenosine triphosphate, the universal energy storage molecule
FT=functional threshold*
*additional notes from Dr. Coggan:
"8 mmol/L is something that many endurance athletes can never achieve, even following a VO2max test."
"One more comment/caution: although they are obviously quite comparable, the notions of "functional threshold power" and "CP60" are not identical, as your conversion table implies."

"For various ways of estimating functional threshold power, you can search the wattage list for a post I wrote titled "seven deadly sins" or some such."
