Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and/or know what could have caused it.
So was doing the McCarthy special workout today and everything was going fine until the 2nd and 3rd sets of highest interval. It seemed to be the more watts I was pushing out the more lag I was getting. (I was on the big downhill segment of innsbruck for the final set not sure if speed was an issue)
The screen would essentially just freeze up for 2 to 5 seconds then catch up and play for 2 seconds so on until the interval was complete. I was in the pain locker that much I ignored it and kept my cadence and just waited until i jumped along to the arch and could ease off.
So I put it down to wifi connection lag (tethering through 4G) but on analysing my activity on strava I realised it had completely messed up the final intervals. (Those that arent familiar with the workout all 3 sets of intervals should be similar, 3minutes each interval 9mins a set). Something has literally wiped off 40-60seconds from the intervals (lap 12 and 16) and wiped up to 100watts from the average.
On my PC and the graph version of stravas analysis essentially the last minute of the interval drops down by like 100watts but stays very consistent.
So yeah is this normal? What could have caused it? Is it a one in a million chance? Any advice to avoid this would be ideal! I seem to be having a problem almost every ride at the moment!
I was going to post a screenshot of the problem but cant post media, so thought link to my workout apparently not allowed either, so hopefully you understand my issue.
Any more questions or imagery let me know!
