I tried my first outdoor workout this week, which was Kaweah. I thought this would be a good one to try since it was simple - 5 x 10min intervals at FTP.
It really didn’t work out. I spent the whole time chasing the target power number and either ending up over or undershooting. I had set my Wahoo to show 20 sec avg. power but even so it was difficult to stay in the target zone.
The course I had chosen was the most flat I could make it, but I live in an area with lots of small ups and downs in the roads.
How are others approaching outdoor workouts? Did I choose the wrong workout? The wrong course? Not consistent enough on the bike?
