Interested in some feedback, if anyone has some to offer.
Saturday - used the trainer. Ave Pwr 148. NP=150. IF=0.7. Time: 1hr. KJ=545.
Sunday - rode outside. Ave Pwr 129. Np=147. IF=0.66. Time: 1hr 6 min. KJ=525.
After my ride on Sat I felt really anxious and on-edge; however, after the ride on Sunday I felt great, no issues.
Does anyone else ever suffer irritability after a harder ride (I know the ride on Sat wasn't *that* much harder)? Can this be a result of more cortisol released into the system or something else? Also, I'm wondering if the 'boredom' factor of the trainer can be an issue - I'm one of these people who detests monotony. Cycling on the trainer often feels like something I want to get out of the way as opposed to cycling on the road I enjoy much more.
Just after a little feedback. Thanks.
