Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I don't trust Strava's fitness/freshness numbers. Strava's formula for normalized (weighted average) power doesn't agree with nearly anyone else's, so the rest of the statistics are off as well. Especially if there's any zero power time (coasting). If pedaling time is 100%, then it comes close. Intervals.icu agrees well with both Training peaks numbers and the Elevate plugin numbers.

Did you enter your Strava FTP? Intervals may default to an estimate if you don't. There may also be a difference in how they compute load.

Basically companies are required to give you 60 days notice if they will furlough you.

I've noticed that the NP on my Wahoo is usually a little higher than what Strava indicates as a Weighted Average. I usually forget that Fitness/Freshness exists, but I have been looking at it every now and then for the last month or so. FWIW, Strava says I'm ~as fit as I've ever been.

It seems to have grabbed my indicated FTP from Strava, which is probably 5-10w low. As far as Intervals, I haven't made a point of doing any on a real ride in... forever, unless you count, "let's do this entire ride at 90%" or "I'mma hold X watts up this hill." I really should start doing some real-world intervals, but I've never figured out how to set it up on the Wahoo. *shrug*

Yeah, it's done that to me the last couple times, too. Odd. I wonder if the LPLO is also a function of long threads like the ghost pages from deleted posts.

I also thought we tended to not let them exceed 500 pages.

Lolololol. So I'm looking at my power curve on intervals.icu and they're telling me that my power profile is "all-around" (code for "ha ha - you fat ****!" I assume) and my the top end is looking... low. So I do a little digging, looking for individual activities where I know that I exceeded X watts for Y seconds. And I start seeing these weird little symbols. wut. Clicking on them reveals that I exceed their expected power curve for me, based upon my FTP, by more than 20%, so they kindly "corrected" the spurious data for me.

Meanwhile, I can't find my baggie of rotor bolts. I checked in the Wheel Parts Drawer and the Brakes Drawer, and nada

Guess I need to go get some beer and clean off the workbench
