Hey! I’m new to Zwift and getting a little frustrated. I did an FTP test when I first started, as suggested by Zwift. When I am in event or workout it is ridiculously easy. If I try to move at the power/speed which is comfortable the system scolds me telling me to slow down. If I go at the recommended pace, I feel as though I am not working at all. In a banded event when I look at other riders around me I am much, much lower in the w/kg level (I was at 0.5w/kg when others near me were well above 1w/kg. Then in a non-banded workout I had a much higher w/kg just to maintain staying near the pack, which everyone else was maintaining speed at a lower w/kg. And, of course, just as demoralizing is I invariably dropped to last position in both cases. I’ve calibrated the trainer several times and I’m dead on center. The only way I feel I can get a workout is by doing a free ride at my own pace…but the reason I joined Zwift is for the groups and events.
Any help appreciated.
