Are you using ZwiftPower with a "dumb" trainer Charles? If so your power numbers are probably pretty close to what you'd be experiencing with a power meter. IME they track fairly closely, with 3-5%. Maybe you're just a beast! ;-)
Thanks for the kind comment, Gene, :) but I'm afraid this isn't the case. Yes, I am using a dumb trainer and a speed/cadence sensor. The problem is, my classic trainer is not on the list of supported trainers, which I only just realized. I found the brand and model name, but mine is actually an older version. Apparently Zwift calibrated each of the classic trainers on their approved list on a model-by-model basis, so if it's not on the list it cannot be guaranteed to be accurate. As for the actual experience, I was supposedly putting out averages of 400w and max 1200w, with a heart rate around 120, and blasting by people; so as beastly as I'd like to think myself, I knew something wasn't right. ;)
You are a good, honest man Charles, maybe the last one in Zwift world! Now you say you were putting out 400 watts @ a 120 HR? What brand of dumb trainer are you using? ;-)
Hah! Well, besides keeping it honest, if it's artificially easy, I won't be pushing myself as hard! You're only cheating yourself--doubly true!
20 minute lap, I'll vouch for you my friend!
Haha, thanks, Ryan. "...new high score, what does that mean...is that bad...did I break it?.."
