main set of my workout is 1:30 intervals at 50-55 cadence, at >110% FTP, followed by 2:00 at 75-90 watts, 65-70 cadence. I’m using a Tacx Vortex SMART and not in ERG mode, since I want the highest possible average, not just hold right at 110%.
In my top gear, at 55rpm, I’m only pushing 220Watts, while in my lowest, I’m at about 100Watts @65rpm. I tried playing with the incline setting in the Companion app and got it to increase so I could be at about 265Watts (which was plenty for me right now), but then I couldn’t go light enough to get under 100 on the rest interval.
Second question: My coach built this workout in TrainingPeaks, so it’s there in Zwift on the right day. But he likes ranges, not specific targets. Example was I was given 206-290Watts for today. But Zwift defaulted to 246W, and I had to lower my stated FTP to get the target right. Is this just the nature of workouts that are transferred? I hate to have to rebuilt each workout to get the targets right.
