After training with power indoors over the last couple winters, I finally caved and bought a pair of Garmin Vector 3 power meter pedals. I’ve done a few rides now, and have looked at my power zones in TrainerRoad through the calendar and am surprised how much time is spent in anaerobic, e.g., my ride this morning (about 1h50min), I have 30 mins in anaerobic (26%). The routes I’ve done so far have included shorter punchy climbs (8-15%), and it’s really interesting to see how much my power goes up, whether powering up a hill, or sitting in my easiest gear on a steeper incline (I now get the power to weight ratio thing!). Is it possible to have this much anaerobic, or is my FTP just wrong?
My trainer rides haven’t felt easy (VO2 max intervals always my bane), so I don’t feel like it’s that off. Looking at my Personal Records comparison, the PRs are all from my Wahoo Kickr trainer rides during TrainerRoad workouts, and not from my recent outdoor rides. Any perspectives are appreciated. Trying to paste an invite if it works:
