How to Analyze Your Gravel Ride

Coach Ryan Kohler demonstrates how to analyze ride data from a gravel workout with a high aerobic strain.

Now that you’ve tried Coach Ryan Kohler’s Gravel Ride Workout, it’s time to analyze your data. In this workshop, Ryan walks through the demands of this particular ride file to better understand how and why the rider met the goals of the workout.

Remember, this ride is a great way to build your overload by applying a very high aerobic strain, combined with some race-intensity efforts in a pre-fatigued state. Be careful not to overdo it. And to know whether you’ve pushed too hard, an analysis of the data after the ride will help you assess how you might need to modify the workload of future attempts.
