I’ve only been riding now for 7 weeks (not just on Zwift, but for the first time in about 20 years), and I’ve found myself free riding about 70% of the time, and only doing workouts about 30% of the time.
I haven’t yet done an FTP test, but let Zwift ‘guess’ my FTP, which is currently at ~170w.
When I do the workouts I find I go less intense on myself than I do on a free ride, but I therefore find the free ride more rewarding.
As the FTP increases, the workouts, I’m guessing start to feel way more intense.
Just curious then, what do you find yourself doing more of, free rides, or workouts, or is it a 50/50 split?
