yeah, I did. Is it relevant, for highlighting that interval target is front and center?
I can kind of see the momentary power, in the power-graph, as you mentioned. But, it’s a coarse graph. I can see when I’m close, and I can see when I’m not.
I’d think in some cases it’s the target, and other cases it’s not. But, given that Garmin hasn’t exposed a way to specify 4 fields instead of 3, which is the priority? I think it varies on the scenario.
I think the argument of being well over the range to make up for it, is dependent on the duration of the interval and how far under you are.
To extrapolate the emphasis being placed on that argument (“well over the target RANGE”), my guess is that you’re saying target is not important for a long interval and you can drift under the target, and that rest breaks in the interval are OK. It could be traffic lights, or it could be that you’re tired and need to stop (and fill out the survey that it was traffic lights. ).
I’d guess that interval power is one of the metrics being used to determine if you pass/fail the workout. Just like if you stop in the middle of a VO2 interval. Fail. Stop in Z2, don’t care.
Interpretation of the interval target, and reaction to the target, is what you’re arguing about in the latter posts. I get that. I still think it’s an either/or scenario, and varies. You might want 3s, someone else may want the interval range. On a VO2 power interval, I’d want to see my lap power. 3s doesn’t really cut it there, IMO, as it’s probably going all over the place. Maybe I want 10s or 30s, if it must be some form of instant power.
I get that, but that’s not the point I am making in a selected response to you. That was that it is not on any of the apps. My point is that it is on the apps. Nothing more than that.
There’s no need to move the goal posts and to try and convince me. I’m pretty rational about it, and would just make another screen as I see the value of both. It’s situational.
