Good steady L3 work continues with no major problems. Did this session a bit differently and decided to make some more use of the SpinScan feature of the CompuTrainer and run a report on it at the end of the session.
Session went fine and produced some interesting data which is shown in the report below. I was pleased with what appears to be a pretty reasonable balance in the relative power outputs of my legs, it's just a shame I don't have 4 of them!
I guess I must have developed a reasonable leg balance as they both appear to be "firing" at about the same time with the ATA (Average Torque Angle) being virtually identical. Might be worth thinking about trying to bring the ATA down as in theory an ATA of 90 would make best use of the crank leverage.
Anyway, I'll give that some thought but think I will use this facility more than perhaps I have for my L3 work and see if I can make any small improvements. A spin scan of around 70 isn't bad but I think I can perhaps improve that though the results depend a great deal on the loads applied, higher loads will tend to produce lower SpinScan numbers in most riders. In the end you can do what (or is it watt) you can do!
The HR data was higher today as I was messing about a bit and trying different things just by way of a bit of a change but I generally did a 2x20 L3 session and overall it was an interesting and worthwhile session.
