Thanks David! Another question then. I’m using this through the Stryd app on my Fenix 6s. My understanding was that I had to access power workouts this way or it would not alert me when I was over/under my target power range etc. Is this true? I just checked and I can access the workout fine from the native run built into the Fenix from Garmin. It’s only when accessing through the Stryd app via the watch that it shows too large. So … Stryd issue?November 4, 2021 at 6:26 am in reply to: Stryd Workout App and RPI5 (Progression Intervals Run) #15082
Same problem here. 5k level 1 power based, Progression intervals (RPI1). Thanks! I’ll just trade it with my weekend speedwork for now.
So the good news is I only use pace after the fact when looking back and comparing data. I actually have no clue of my pace while I’m running. I’m using effort primarily but a power training plan which tells me if I’m going to fast on an easy run Etc. I’m also not winning any races with my speed so being precisely accurate on Pace is probably not all that important. More just a curiosity to me to see how my pace is change has my fitness changes. I do like your idea though and I’ve done it to an extent based on routes that I’m familiar with. So far I’m kind of leaning toward my GPS but I’m not sure if that’s just vanity as it appears to give me a slightly faster average pace. Or even just that I’ve been using a GPS watch for 8 or 9 years and so that pacing seems more consistent to what I’m used to.
As an additional piece of information. I’m in the country – lots of woods but no real issue with buildings in big cities etc for GPS. Also, when using GPS and leaving auto-calibrate on for Stryd – it tends to bump to about 104%. I have to turn auto-calibrate off and adjust back to 100 when I change the settings on Stryd. Thoughts on the calibration piece? Just noticing when I switched to using Stryd for pace and distance that I’m running a higher power and but slower pace than when using GPS. At least on easy runs.
