I’m new to Zwift and indoor training in general. I only have a Mountain Bike and it’s also what I use on the Smart trainer. The set up is a 2x10 (26T and 38T infront, 11T-42T at the back)
I’ve been trying some Off-Road Training Plan (started with the most basic - Pebble Pounder) and I find it too hard to reach and maintain the intervals of 250w and 220w. I use the smallest cog (11T) and it gets me to 220W but it’s impossible to sustain for more than 2 minutes. I then shift to lighter gears and I spin out.
Am I just too weak? Or are training plans just built for road bike set up?
