Today I was in the midst of the second half of a build block and Dade+1 popped up.
I was doing well with targeted power range until I hit a pretty flat part in the road. All intervals 2:30 in length with 4-5min rest. I was in the 6th tough interval.
I maintained speed but my power dropped from 316 (bottom of target) to 295. No matter how fast I got the cadence up the watts barely budged.
I think this is sign of better fitness since at 295 I held the speed steady. Clicked down for faster spin and tried going into a harder gear, actually the whole way up.
When this happens which is better? Faster cadence or higher gear to hold power?
Thanks for reading.
