As my Tacx Smart Flow has packed up (might start another thread on that), I tried the ‘Mountfield’ workout outside. What I don’t like, is when it switched to the first 12 minute interval at 207W, the displayed power figure is not an actual, or even a 3 -sec average, but seems to be an average power figure over the duration of that interval.
So, yesterday my 12 minute 207W interval started on the flat and all was going OK for the first 30 seconds but then I went down a long downhill, as I stopped pedalling, the power figure doesn’t drop to zero, just slowly goes down as the average drops. 1 minute later my displayed power figure shows only 125W yet I’ve hit a slight uphill and I know I’m pushing over 300W! The net effect at the end of the interval could average out at the required 207W but also it might not.
Am I doing something wrong?
Any help greatly appreciated.
