4. Feel your effort.
Although Weiss is a firm believer in power meters, he has developed a keen consciousness for his own effort level on the bike and doesn’t change his effort with every glace at his computer. “I check my average watts every 10 to 15 minutes,” says Weiss. “I don’t check my power and then shift. It’s all about the feeling but I know because I have the experience using the power in training and racing, but most important is still the feeling. Average watts counts for me, [not instant looks at the power meter].”
