Completed my 4x4min VO2 max intervals today (avg 303w) compared to my 3min set 2 weeks prior (avg 307w). Very happy.
I have two questions.
When can average power be greater than normalized power?
I always start my intervals with a 15sec ‘jump’ at the start and for the remainder of the interval watch my avg power drop as I hold my true power for that interval length. I never have a cliff edge drop off in power but for example today my first 20sec- 30sec will average 330w but for the 4min set I’ll avg 303w holding say 295w for the last 3:30. IS THIS NORMAL?
