I wanted to turn to the knowledge of the community to see if anyone can help me understand something I saw in today’s workout.
I did Carpathian + 2 this morning and really struggled through it, so on the last interval of over and under I resorted to doing several 3 minutes out the saddle pedalling.
I was on a smart trainer (Tax Neo) and using ERG mode so I thought the power would closely follow the target but when I was riding and, more evidently, when I analyzed the workout I saw that actually the power I was producing was way under the target:
Why is this the case given I was in ERG mode? Shouldn’t have the trainer just adjusted the resistance? Did this level mean my trainer didn’t have the capacity to produce that resistance (seems unlikely)? Is this a measurement error (felt hard, but also seems unlikely)?
Thanks for the help in advance!
