I’m not sure it’s being off by a specific %. I received the struggle survey on a workout I rated hard and hit the targets. Looks like I varied a bit from my normal in power and cadence though during the intervals. Seems like it’s pretty nuanced.
Right, there is more to the story in the relative Difficulty rating of the workout you perform and your starting PL for that training level. Rating a Hard or even Very Hard for a Stretch may be totally fine. Doing the same rating for an Achievable might rightly issue the Struggle survey because it shouldn’t be that difficult.
Yep, it is not a single factor trigger in many cases.
