I have a question regarding Variability Index compared to Intensity Factor.
I’ve got a 340 mile/34 hour race in April. Course profile will be a death by a thousand cuts, 100 ft of elevation gain at a time with a race total expected around 25-30k ft. Due to that there will be lots of coasting and also a decent amount of time in the temp-ss range. Doing this in training has shown a VI larger than I’d like, Usually around 1.07, due to the nature of the course with lots of zero’s on the power from coasting downhill. Would IF be a better option to keeping the effort in check?
