Agreed… lots of great info here, I just realized about the TR function “search for specific power as well”… really cool.
Will be my first LT100 this year, and I was out at Camp in the beginning of July. In looking at those two rides, I see that I was over altitude adjusted FTP for 1 minute 9 times day 1, 13 times on day 2. That seems pretty reasonable, and I finished with an IF of about .61 on both days.
That was probably a little too conservative, but there was certainly more socializing and learning the course than racing… which was the point at least for me!
I used 3s power to monitor power, and I had AP also up on my Garmin. With all of the descents, I found AP to be pretty much useless. Wondering what people have on their CPU’s… 5s or 10s power seems more appropriate. Maybe 5s power and NP? Or just 5s power… and pace using feel and a glance down as a reminder when you’re running >FTP.
