I love taking my TR workouts outside, but one problem I’ve noticed is that the watts can vary widely, as much as 100 watts, even when using a consistent cadence. I try and keep it above 85 to 90, as Coach Chad teaches (and I personally prefer that cadence for less perceived effort.) When I focus on my form, the watts will bump up for a bit, but don’t stay there for long. Overall today, my watts averaged 18 watts less than the workout called for in the intervals.
But on today’s Kaiser +2 workout, I also tried lowering cadence to 75-80 and my impression is the watts were more consistent with fewer wide swings. Has anyone else noticed this issue? I’m wondering if there is a potential trade-off of lower cadence/more consistent watts that worth using outside.
(FYI, I’m using Assiamo Duo PM.)
