FTP (run/cycle), FTPrun, Threshold Power

Having a few issues relating to different FTL in running and cycling. I found very old posts on this but not using the same designation as i am seeing, so may be for older versions..

Under Athlete, Custom Datafields, i have FTP (run/cycle) and FTPrun
Under Athlete, Training Analysis, i have Threshold Power

I am not sure which one is used for which situation, more specifically which is using the first two.

I hoped the separate settings were to solve the issue where running power seems to be considerably higher than cycling power, so IF factors are very inconsistent and so is TSS.
I am guessing the single FTP entry under Athlete, Training Analysis means TA does not distinguish between run and cycle power?
You are not sharing/using the other FTP values?

These Custom data Fields are created bij TrainingLoadplugin

This Data Field is created by Training Analysis plugin

In the manual written by OMB (Training Analysis) you can read all about the calaculations by this plugin.
Possibly Mechgt (TrainingLoad plugin) has used a slightly different approach.

I am not familiar with Running Power.
I do know calculations for Cycle Power may differ very much from measurements by a multidollar powermeter.
The settings determine the outcome.

In TA you can appoint a FTP for every single activity. You will have to do that for every single day.
