I’ve been trying to build my cadence to the mid 90s from around 80. This is no problem on Z2 rides and I’ve been able to hold a mid 90s cadence on my slow long rides. I’ve started to mix a couple of 4x8 sessions into my training and I notice that I’ll need to drop my cadence into the 80s by the end of the second interval to keep my heart rate below threshold. Should I be dropping my power to keep my cadence up and heart rate below threshold or just not worry about my cadence too much when doing 4x8 interval sessions?
**Just rewatched the video on this over lunch and noticed Trevor say to do a 100 rpm cadence in base and 90 in season. I feel like I would have to drop my power a lot to hold 100 rpm at threshold heart rate though, perhaps that’s what I need to work on though.
Thanks in advance for any advice on this,
