This is my first post, I hope it is in the right place.
I’ve been running outdoors with a milestone pod for some time and it’s calibration is spot on (give or take a couple of meters).
I’ve started running on Zwift and I wonder how crucial it really is to calibrate to a treadmill?
I travel for work so I use different treadmills and I think it’s fair to say the accuracy of both speed and distance on a treadmills in notoriously sketchy.
So firstly I don’t want to mess up the calibration settings of my pod (although I’m not sure calibrating through Zwift actually updates the parameters of the pod…)
That a side I guess my question is, if I want to hold my real world average pace on a treadmill isn’t a well calibrated pod set to my outdoor metric more accurate than calibrating to a random hotel treadmill?
I am very new to Zwift run so maybe I’m missing something here.
