Hi all. I’m about a month in getting to know my Wahoo Kickr. I did the 7-day workout leading to the Full Frontal Test and am now two weeks in on the All-Purpose Road Training Plan.
For the first six workouts (Cadence Builds, Chores, TBTITW, Blender, Revolver, Who Dares) the RPE and heart rate were pretty much on target with the dashboard. In a few places the word “evil” may even have escaped my lips.
However, today’s workout - Thin Air - was, how should I say it…surprisingly easy. Especially since this is all about climbing, and I generally suck at climbing. Well into the workout where the target RPE was 7.5 to 9, I was feeling 6 max. Heart rate never got above the low end of zone 2 even when the dashboard was calling for zone 4 or 5. I have been using the trainer in erg mode and was adhering to the power targets.
I realize that the intensity of the workouts have been adjusted according to the 4DP results and probably my age (64). So what gives? Does the intensity need to be tweaked? Will the plan adjust as I get further into it, all good misery will come to those who wait?
Any insight would be appreciated.
