So I’m a moderately fit guy coming off an injury and level of low activity who is trying Zwift out. So as not to blow the bank on something I may or may not like, I am just using a Tacx Blue Matic with a Wahoo speed and cadence monitor.
The resistance on the TacX is permanently set to 3, but after the short ftp test my average was about 152. I’m a 250 pound, 44 yr old 6’1 man.
I have only done recreational cycling (city riding to and from work most days in summer), but the idea of holding even 180 watts for 20 minutes on my current set up is more than I can handle. For reference, I could probably run a 10k tomorrow without a ton of hassle, but 200W would burn my thighs off after 5 minutes.
Is it calibration, or am I just insanely weak legged? Anyone else have this?
