Hopefully I didn’t provoke a hornet’s nest here. There are several discussions taking place in the same thread it seems.
I don’t really care about having multiple Strava entries, or just one - that bit doesn’t bother me.
What bothers me is that I keep a careful log of all the activity I do each week including time on the turbo, calories burned etc and I use this as a toolkit for helping plan targets and for tracking activity vs weightloss.
In a given week, I can readily spend at least 1 hour - and possibly up to 90 minutes - in the pens.
I won’t be going full tilt at race pace obviously, but as the start countdown nears I will be putting in a decent effort and approaching race HR.
It annoys me that when I try and put my log together, the Activities tab on Zwift only counts the event time from the gun. So, a 45 minute WTRL TTT was actually a 1:15 session, but almost half of my effort isn’t tracked.
Clearly, I don’t join every race 30 minutes beforehand, but for the bigger races or the ones I want to do well in then I do.
In total, that’s anywhere between 500 - 1500 kcal a week burned that I have no visibility of, meaning I have to track through my Garmin, which doesn’t reconcile with Zwift easily.
