just as an fyi, most races do not let you use Zpower(estimated power) so its fine for just riding around and on group rides etc

25 minute power is up 45 watts in 3 weeks of working out on zwift

Not sure I'll get back to last winter's fitness without some substantial outdoor workouts and group rides, but it's certainly putting me within striking range.

^Wow! I'm still fixated on non-virtual group rides. It's unbelievably going to be sunny tomorrow, Sunday group ride day, not even freezing tonight. Good for riding, bad for skiing and the planet. 44 miles and 2300'. Roller work is getting better, down to 4 beats drift in an hour of VT1. Hoping for 45' of Z4 tomorrow - depends on who shows up.
