Looking at my ride from today and I have a teeny, tiny trophy and then next to it is “x49” Could some please tell me what that means? So new still… I watched the ride analysis video but that didn’t help much. SN: Thanks so much for being so kind. I’ve had a bunch of questions this week and they’ve all been answered without making me feel like a total dunce. Stay happy and well out there!
These are your personal records on the power curve.
It means you did a good job
Right but what does x49 actually mean?
That your power curve have improved in 49 points in time.
TrainerRoad records your power output PR’s from 1 sec to several hours. The x49 means you set 49 of these PR’s. So hypothetically you could have set your power PR from 1-49sec
Ah. Interesting. Feels like a bit of data overload TBH. I’m just going to keep on riding and not worry too much about it. Thanks so much!
Everyone gets atrophy!
It certainly makes setting PRs lose some of their luster IMO. You see the little trophy for the workout then it’s not immediately clear where you set a PR with nothing highlighted and you just drag along seeing to the second where you set a new PR. I definitely preferred the old PR chart with coarser PR points where you could tell right away where you set a PR, but .
I dunno if that was on purpose, but that’s going in my ‘on a t-shirt’ collection.
Yeah- a one second PR doesn’t mean that much to me! lol

Now I’m going to have to re-watch the entire series!
I just compare the ride to all rides ever, the places where the power curves touch are where the PRs are.
I was also confused by this. Would be nice to have a summary of which PBs you actually broke rather than scanning through the power curve. I think it would also be much better if it would group PBs into pre-determined time-ranges or you could choose specific time points you care about.
Ah. That is also helpful. Thanks!
You can compare to “all time”, or for a bit more info compare to a custom date range that goes until the day BEFORE the Record-breaking workout. This way you can find where the workout line (red) crosses above your prior best efforts, and see by how much.
I think the TR trophies are only overkill if you view them similar to Strava trophies. They just mean you pushed your power curve out somewhere. Given the granularity of TR’s power curve, there’s thousands of opportunities for this to occur, but I don’t think one is more significant than any other.
Does this mean I went above the power curve set by the trainer? I think that’s the other reason I’m confused…if my trainer is set on erg and controlled by the app, how am I setting records? Or will I keep getting them every time I do a harder workout?
It’s not a comparison to the workout target, but to all your prior efforts.
For example, for the point on the power curve for 5 minutes, it looks at your workout and finds the five minute stretch with the highest average power. It does this for every workout in your history. If your previous best 5 minute power was 200 W but in today’s workout you reached 203 W, you get a “trophy.”
This comparison is repeated for every time duration on the power curve.
So any time you see a trophy, it means you did something you hadn’t previously done, either ever or during the current season.
