I consider myself to have a very smooth pedal stroke with a higher then avg cadence. Tempo 95, sweet spot upper 90’s to 100, threshold 105-110 and so on. On the road I don’t pay attention to my pedaling, it is what it is and I never have any issues. But on the trainer on longer sweet spot and threshold intervals I tend to focus on it too much and I end up with slightly sore calves after a hard ride. I know it helps because when I focus on it my rpe goes down, but after my calves are a little sore.
Has anybody else ever experienced this?
