Filtering Strava Segments for Interval Training

Hilly intervals today 🚴‍♂️😀. I’m using hills today to keep the speeds lowish just in case of ice. Don’t worry I’ll creep down the hills.

I’m using the Strava Segment Filter to find the Segments I will use for my intervals. It’s much more motivating for me to do intervals on Strava Segments. Going from A to B is so much more like racing than interval time.

I want to find Segments along my route of around 6-8 minutes, at a power of 360-380 Watts and up hill greater than 3% gradient.

First of all I set the forecast for the time I will be training. I then set the whole ride to use my interval power of 360-380 Watts.

Now the whole ride is using my interval parameters I can then use the filter (top right corner icon) to find only the Segments that meet my training objectives.

Now I just have to get out there and do it!
