I track my data in excel, and I isolate and log recovery rides separately. specifically what my power, duration, and HR are when riding at as easy as possible based only on RPE.
I just don’t know if there are any trends to be gleaned from this data?
is a professional’s EZ RPE recovery raw wattage going to be much higher than an amateur like me? If one season my recovery wattage is usually around 105 watts then some time later i do a recovery ride at 60 watts for similar durations… what ever could that mean?
Perhaps an indicator of me being more tired when i end up doing 60W rather than 100W?
