I started with Zwift properly at the start of the year after enjoying a trial. It was around the same time I decided that after years of offshore food and snacking at my desk I needed to reverse the trend of an ever growing stomach. So I cut down the calories and upped my Zwifting to 3-5 times a week.
Now I’m not 100% sure that all the numbers are adding up as I feel I’ve progressed in my in-game abilities faster than I’d expected so I’d appreciate if someone could quickly review and tell me if there is something I’m missing.
My trainer is an Elite Volare Mag Speed set to resistance 2 (I referenced the following when setting up: https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/204551853-Trainer-Power-Curves) I tried it recently on level 3 but the jump was a lot higher than expected and unrealistic so
Starting in mid-Jan my avg watts were probably about 200-250 depending on the length of ride. My stamina has increased as it appears my power has. Zwift tells me I should now be using an FTP of 330.
Simultaneously I have lost some weight; down from about 95kg to 89kg currently.
My Zwiftpower link is https://www.zwiftpower.com/profile.php?z=532392
Have I really developed from being able to hold 2.5W/kg to approx 3.7W/kg?
Thanks in advance!!
