I have been using my zwift setup for the last week, and its been a ton of fun, but I can’t figure out why the data is so off the real world.
Usually when I bike in RL, I average about 30km in an hour. I normally go at a pretty good pace, but nothing to strenuous, I am a very casual rider (as of now!). I never really pushed myself as I like the long rides (3+ hours) and try and pace myself. I also live in BC, Canada, so tons of hills.
In zwift though, I am biking crazy hard, harder than I ever have in RL, not stopping for a downhill coast or a break for an entire hour workout, legs have never hurt like this before, then at the end it says I only did 15km! No way!
I even cheated the last workout by dropping my weight from 90kg to 70kg, but that only gave like an extra 2km.
I know the fluid2 with a speed sensor isn’t perfect, but I didn’t imagine it being off by almost 2x. Its really frustrating going so slow!
Am I doing anything wrong? Or is zwift just not worth it unless you have a power meter or smart trainer?
