I find myself stopping the first time I “pop” and unconsciously stop pedaling. Is this what is meant by being physically unable to pedal? Or should I instead try to resume pedaling after this first pop and see if I cannot at least go for a few more seconds, maybe even finish the current step?
My AI results are basically within the margin of error of my last ramp test result, and I feel I am consistent if nothing else. However, I wonder if I shouldn’t keep going past my first lapse of concentration, even though I might not be as consistent from test to test.
I figure needing to fight the spiral of death if I let my cadence drop might actually affect the test results, especially if the trainer lets off and I can can catch my breath for an instant.
Before actually letting of the pedals, I can usually fight off two or three sudden urges to stop.
