I was running the Taxman workout on 2/26, and found it to be too easy, so I adjusted the intensity up to 110%. This set the initial power target for the intervals to be a decent level, but then the MPA calculation quickly dropped the power level, resulting in a few good seconds before it crashes the power to avoid dropping MPA any further.
For SMART intervals, it’d be cool if the ‘intensity’ factor adjusted the actual target metric, rather than power directly. Those micro intervals run at 99.4% reserve MPA, and pick a power target to achieve that. Currently, the system adjusts the power target, but then the SMART system brings the power down. Instead, the SMART system could have it run at 110% intensity of the 99.4% reserve MPA - which I guess would be 98.5% or something similar.
Adjusting the intensity up actually made the workout considerably easier, as it only gave me about 5s at ~250W, instead of the ~15s of 230W it was programmed for.
