    Aerobic Decoupling Question

    So yesterday, on a 2 hr ride with some 15 minute intervals, my aerobic decoupling came out to be 8.99%

    I rode again today for a bit over 4 hours (finishing off about 16.5 hours this week) and my aerobic decoupling was -1.55%

    What are these numbers telling me?

    PS. the search function is quite helpful. It sleuthed out my post regarding it as well as the posts that came before me.

    Do this: Advanced Search, Enter keyword. At the bottom, select "show results as posts."

    Pretty useless data unless you are doing a steady state effort. It shows the relationship between HR and power. In a steady state effort a high (relative) decoupling would indicate fatigue or dehydration among other things.
