I really suck at pedal smoothness and I know I need to improve but I can’t help but feel as if my cadence slowly has to increase during an interval just to put down the same prescribed power.
Is this normal because of natural momentum or should I be able to smooth this out and maintain a consistent cadence/power during intervals.
One thing I’ve noticed is that during the first few intervals I’ll be on 53x14 but then find my cadence creeping past 100 rpm so I’ll up the gear to 53x13 just to get back down to 90-95 rpms. Repeat this cycle until eventually I’m on the highest gear.
I’m using powermatch and ERG mode. I’m using Assioma duos and my trainer is the Wahoo Kickr Snap. I make sure my rear tire is at the same pressure and calibrate the assiomas and the kickr before every workout.
Here’s my latest workout for reference. Disregard the last interval as I had a little left in the end (is this bad to do, btw?).
