Question for the group. Over the past few weeks, I have raced 2 different triathlons (olympic and half) both with fairly rolling bike courses. I have been fairly disappointed with my bike splits from a power perspective at both races. When using the ride analyzer, it is apparent (I think) that a big part of my problem is that I am struggling to put out consistent power and am instead undulating a fair bit.
On the half for example, my goal was to average about 230 watts (80% of my FTP) and I ended up averaging just shy of 215 watts, with a normalized power of 231. The effort certainly felt more like 230 watts that 215 watts. I managed a good run of the bike so was happy with that, but feel like I could have had a better bike split if I had kept the watts more consistent throughout. Here is a link to the ride if helpful.
Looking for general advice on how to keep the power consistent when the course is up and down. It may be that I just need to practice more–most of my training has been indoors in erg mode where the resistance is constant.
