So I trained the past 8 years or so on a KK road machine. My sweat ate through 2 of them and they replaced it through warranty and after this third one went I decided I should just buy a new trainer rather then continuing to milk KK for new ones for the $225 I spent almost a decade ago.
I have the typical TT style rider, strong at holding higher wattages for a long time. Never had problems holding 8, 10, 15, 20 min efforts very steady on the KK with a Quarq (like easy to stay within a 3-5 watt range) so I figured erg mode or any of the other modes would feel normal. Well now upgrading to a Wahoo Core I find that the interval efforts feel harder to hold. I am not using the Kickr powermeter, I am using my Quarq.
Any reason why I am finding the intervals harder then I normally did on the KK? I do have it on a riser which I thought I read thats level without one, so is it giving me that going up hill feel? Is this something I’ll just adjust to? Just a little tired towards the end of the year? Any other ideas?
