Did a Ramp test on Monday and got a nice increase thanks to a ton of consistency the last several months. Was looking over my data and my cadence was around 104 for the entire ride. Pretty normal number for me, but it made me look back at some of my earlier data in TR.
If I go back to 2018 when I first started doing the Ramp test my cadence was consistently in the high 90’s. Then I went back to my first ever 20 min FTP test on the platform in 2014 and my cadence was 91.
Today I did Carpathian Peak and my avg cadence during the efforts was 104, so I looked back to my previous attempts at that workout and sure enough a couple years ago my avg cadence was mid-to-high 90’s.
I’m not deliberately trying to change my cadence, but it seems my “natural” cadence is climbing over time. Anyone else experience this?
Maybe age related?? I’m mid 40’s now.
