Hey team! I’m almost certain this has been asked and answered but I can’t track it down.
All else being equal, is it better (read: will it pad my ego more) to upload 1 long ride vs 2 shorter rides. In all seriousness, which will give AI FTP detection a better sense of my capabilities?
A 2hr vo2 session + 1hr endurance uploaded all as one ride.
A 2hr vo2 session, and a 1hr endurance ride, uploaded as 2 files.
The reason I ask is I sometimes do my intervals indoors before heading out to do endurance outdoors.
Thanks @ZackeryWeimer - that’s really helpful info. I’m not too fussed about my endurance PL. 1hr rides aren’t enough to move that needle. But it’s the AI FTP side of things that I was curious about, which you answered.
