I tried doing some searching for this, but couldn’t come up with anything. If this is has been brought up before, my apologies and bear with me here:
Anyway - I have I think a gen 2 kickr - has the newer handle. Everything has been fine with this unit as I’ve had it for about 4 months. I’m using it in erg mode with workouts and power smoothing enabled on the wahoo app. I either use my duo trap for cadence or my stages. Up until recently, my stages wasn’t working, so why I was just using the kickr.
However, this past week all of my workouts feel like hell. I’ve done spin downs, advanced spin downs, trainer road spin downs, and tightening up the belt - but not too tight. I just had to quit Glassy because for whatever reason 180 watts for five minutes felt like 300 watts. I have an sneaky feeling this is why my ramp test on Tuesday felt horrible.
So, I just paired the stages as my power source and the kickr just for resistance/erg with power match on. Again, felt like shit.
I did mount field on Thurs and felt fine. Yesterday I couldn’t finish my workout either. Getting my cadence over 85 was torture where in the past I do these threshold workouts at 90-95 cadence.
Is it my trainer? Am I burnt out? I’ve raced a lot this spring, summer, and fall for cx. Have sort of been taking it easy the last week and a half and got right back into my 2019 training Tuesday.
I reached out to Wahoo and now just waiting to hear back.
My stages is up to date. My kickr is up to date.
