Hi. I created my first custom workout, and for whatever reason I’m running into some numeric problems. Not sure if it’s something I’m doing or a shortcoming of the generator. Sorry for the lengthy description, but not sure I can get my point across in a few seconds.
To my incredible annoyance, I get a “you can’t embed” message if I try to paste images, download images, or add links to images. So, sorry for the text-only description.
I set my 1 mile pace in Zwift and Zwift WC to 10:00 so that it’s easy to do the math on the distance calculations that follow.
As an example of the problem, I started off by adding a Warmup activity at 60% throughout.
I wanted to warm up with 5 minutes of walking, so I did 0.3 miles @ 60%. This translated to 3.6 mph, which is correct.
In the resulting ZWO file it translated to the following:
SteadyState Power=“0.6” Duration=“482.80199999999996” pace=“0”
I then added the ZWO file to my Zwift workouts directory on my PC.
However, despite having the same 10:00 1-mile pace, the numbers are different in the Zwift version of the workout.
For the same warmup interval that was 0.3 miles @ 3.6mph in the tool, it has become 0.25 miles @ 3.6 mph. This problem repeats itself with some of the workout components and not with others, but it disrupts the workout enough that I’m not sure what’s going on.
Any idea what I’m doing wrong? Or is this some kind of quirk in the tool?
And, happy to provide screenshots if someone can tell me how to do this without getting that blasted error!
