Yesterday my Garmin fēnix 6 was nagging me about the need for base, which of course I ignored. Hold up, not just because I didn’t want to, but because the Friday morning group ride is supposed to be slow, and laid back. So I figured that it would be easy to ride off the back in something that would approximate a base power output. That was not to be the case this morning though, with quite a bit over base required not to get dropped (although, can you get dropped if you’re riding in the chair behind the chair behind the chair behind the easy chair?). Which not only blew out my plan for the morning, but led to me being WAY overdressed.
What I didn’t expect was that my watch would nag me, completely unprompted, about it when I got home. Which, TBH, I have mixed feelings about. It’s great that Garmin has added better fitness algorithms to the device, but it felt a little like it was pilling on. Ignorance is bliss, right?
