After a workout (which syncs no probs) I like to do a cool down with Taku or a Freeride. If I only do a couple of minutes to get my body temperature, HR and breathing down, it doesn’t sync because I didn’t ride for long enough.
What is the SHORTEST ride I can do so TR syncs with Strava?
Thanks everyone. Yes I’m pretty familiar with those suggestions but thank you.
I guess I was just trying to get accurate average data for the actual workout rather than diluting it with up to half an hour of recovery.
Selfishly I ALSO want Strava to be able to log the extra work I put in. So it’s good to know I need to do a minimum amount of time on a cool down to sync my work. Petty I know, but there you are. Numbed motivate me.
One option to not ‘dilute’ the data from the original workout, if you use the extend cooldown, is to go in afterward and create 2 custom laps. 1 for the workout and 1 for the cooldown. The summary data will still be for the whole combined workout but you can then quickly click on the laps to see what you want to see.
I believe the min on TR is 4 mins… some time ago i created a custom workout to try different power levels and see if the smoothing setting made and changes to actual turbo response …i raised a query to TR as they did not post… was told the 4 mins… could be outdated now though ?
