I periodically try to beat my PB on the Epic KOM, but have been puzzled recently that despite putting out slightly higher average watts than I did during my PB, my times always seem to be about 20 or 30 seconds behind. Now, this might be down to technique, i.e. perhaps I was using my power more productively during my PB attempt, but the consistent difference seems odd.
I’m vaguely remembering that at some point in the past I put my weight up by a couple of pounds (reflecting a real-life fluctuation), and I’m thinking that this may explain the average watts / time differences. But how do I find out what my weight was set to for a particular ride, and/or the date I changed my weight?
What kind of person votes down sensible questions? Or perhaps there is an answer I’m not aware of - if so, please provide it rather than voting down the question!
As far as I know Zwift, Strava nor TrainingPeaks tracks your weight in this way.
Neil: Someone is against "Bike Drills to improve Pedaling technique,"someone is against the question “Does internet speed or ping effect FPS?” and someone is against the statement “Hi, I didn’t get the finisher jersey when finished the challenges.”
Someone has a negative attitude about almost anything.
Yeah, you’re right of course. Which makes the voting feature a bit pointless at best and inflammatory at worst. I’ll just ignore it in future!
Perhaps you drafted the whole time on your pb
Neil, you don’t say what type of trainer you have but calibration could be a factor as well
