We had house guests so I couldn’t work out until later in the day. I’m still struggling with the dynamic so I decided to just redo the saturday workout with similar targets to see what happened.
- 3 x 20′ / 1′
- stroke rate: r20
- Heart Rate Limit: 155
- Power target: ~160W (up 3W from yesterday, but I started higher than that yesterday and bled down as I went along. I wanted to be steadier in this session.

Comparison of Saturday to Sunday
- Much more level power profile
- Stroke rate wiggled around a bit in the last 20′ as I tried to max out power without blowing the HR limit.
- HR climbed more slowly at the beginning, but was almost exactly the same for the last 2/3 of the workout.
