My average cadence on the trainer is 90+ after a workout. I’ve noticed that my average cadence on an outdoor mountain bike ride is 75+. It’s pretty punchy terrain and feels like uphill in every direction. Littered with short steep climbs.
The time spent in the various zones on the TR power profile outdoors is usually around 20% anaerobic and 20% active recovery, 20% coasting and only around 5% of the time in each of the other zones. My 2 hour ride yesterday had only 6 minutes in sweet spot.
Do you think it would be wise to lower my cadence on my indoor rides in the base phase? Or will my outdoor cadence rise as my training progresses? Currently 2 weeks into SS Base II mid volume after completing SSB mid I and Short Power Build mid vol. I went back to do SS Base II because I overlooked it when I started TR. Or do I wait for the Specialty Phase to sort out the discrepancy between time spent in certain zones and how to train for them?
