Since the feature to allow workouts to be completed outside was released, I had been testing it and have some concerns/questions about the differences noticed when compared to the inside version.
It’s not the best time to do workouts outside given the current situation but in the near future when ,hopefully, riding outside becomes a norm (and reasonably safe), I am looking to substitute sessions for outdoor rides again.
Device: Wahoo Elemnt/Bolt
Not sure if the workouts are the same on Garmin units (I assume they are.)
Notice not all intervals match-up - would it be more effective to ride inside for these cases to optimize the benefits of the intended design of the workout? Are there workouts that should be more suited to complete on an ERG trainer inside?
It’s near impossible to hit exact power values outside - is it best to hit the upper range of an interval given outdoor FTP is usually higher than indoor FTP?
When substituting rides outside, I noticed the ride is not considered a TR ride and the analysis to check intervals against targets are missing. Is it possible to overlay the TR power targets prescribed against the laps of the outdoor rides.
