I’m using Trainer Road for a week now, but there is something I can’t understand. I have Tacx iGenius smart trainer and my FTP is 231 watts.
Today I did Avalanche Spire workout, I started with 34 in front and 20 on the cassette, cadence between 85 and 95 … I was ready to give up in the middle of the workout. It was too hard, almost impossible for me to reach the target.
Then I switch the gears to 50 in front and 13 on the cassette which is supposed to be harder, but not I finished the workout without any problems, even the average cadence in this second part was higher (100-110 rpm). It was easy for me in this second part.
What I miss or what is the right thing to do?
P.S.: I’m on ERG mode.
