Regarding gears and watt output

Hi there beautiful people,

I have started Zwifting about 2 months ago. I have a Tacx Genius which I have calibrated properly, and I’m on week 5 of the Zwift Racing plan. I don’t use ERG mode during my workouts as most of them have short-high interval efforts, and I also like shifting gears :slight_smile:

My Difficulty Level setting is 100%

My issue is that I have to start with 8th gear and most part of the workout is done on 9th and 10th.
Gears 1 to 7 are never used because I spin like crazy and the wattage output is so low.
Is that normal?
