Hey folks, wondering if anyone has 0.02c worth on this minor issue I encounter.
When I am working on intervals with large increases and decreases in power, I always seem to get some issues ‘spinning out’ at the end of each interval. In the example below, I’m at 127% for the work, then for the recovery it drops to 40%.
When the work finishes, I try to carry my cadence over from the work interval. However, when ERG drops the resistance, I find I’m spinning out for a couple of seconds, then I’m wrestling with ERG to get back on target for the start of the next interval.
Mostly I manage to get back on target for the work, but for short intervals it’s a challenge. ERG seems to lag a little, then I find I’m sometimes off target at the start of the next interval - sometimes too low, so I’m chasing, sometimes too high, so I’m working too hard.
On longer intervals (5,10,20…) I don’t care about this, but on shorter, intervals I’d like to tighten things up if possible.
It was bugging me today, so when I completed the workout I did a factory spindown on the Kickr and decided to throw it out on the forum.
