I just finished the “Pedaling Drills” workout in the “Build Me Up” plan, and I have to say it is very frustrating for those of us who have a left crank arm power meter.
When I get to the “unclip your left pedal and use just your right leg” segments, my power reading understandably drops to zero. That’s fine, and it’s what I’d expect.
However, what I didn’t expect was that the workout clock stopped running when my power reading went to zero. Apparently, the people who designed this workout didn’t think of this either.
Zwift knows that I have a Stages left crank arm power meter. It should therefore know that my power reading is going to drop to zero when I unclip my left pedal. The workout clock should keep running in this case, even though it would normally stop when someone stops pedaling.
(I was a bit surprised that my cadence reading also went to zero, but I guess that the cadence is actually inferred from the cyclic power changes, rather than by any direct measurement.)
