Which power averaging option should I choose?
From another Stryder:
When doing a Stryd workout, which setting do you have your power on? Real/3s/10s/30s/lap average. I can see benefits for each but I’d like to hear other people’s recommendations/preferences and reasons why they choose that option.
I like to use 3s averaging along with lap average. 3s average for me 'smooths' my instantaneous power but still reacts well to changes in my environment (hills, wind).
Lap power I use as my reference power for my goal power, especially on tempo or races. It helps me match my target and when I lap I get a mental check in with my power number. This also helps when getting near the end of my race, I can decide if I want to push harder to my S power goal or maintain my A power goal.
