So let me know your thoughts before I raise a request to zwift…
I’m abit of a data monkey and milestones are a great motivator for me.
When I ride zwift I have an abundance of data - each of which can provide milestones that usually accumulate to keep me on the IDT longer than I expect (#zwifteffect)
For example - I might ride an interval session and then see that the session has finished with me being at 45km. Naturally I’ll stay on to hit 50. But then at 50 I see that ive climbed 660m - OBVIOUSLY I can’t leave before cresting 700m - then at 700 I notice that I’ve burnt 939 calories - and who doesn’t love a good round number - so I stay on to hit 1000 calories. Maybe by this time I’m almost at the next level - so I stay on to level up - at this stage I’ve got a good Milage so start getting “ride ons” and so the circle of pain (fitness) continues… Because who can stop at 56kms?
So here’s the suggestion - zwift gives you this feedback in real time on the basis of your data - some milestones could be:
Xxx kms to next level up
Xxx kms off your longest ride
Xxx kms off burning xxx slices of pizza (you’ve almost burnt off last nights cheating!)
Xxx time in in power / HR zones (relative to PR)
Xxx meters to beat PR
Xxx meters to climb yyy real world climb/mountain
Performance in quartile etc…
