    Having spent a lot time on TR the last month or so, I nipped on Zwift today. The watts I was putting out felt a lot easier than on TR (wahoo kickr snap and yes, calibrated 6 mins in the app, same as I do in TR)

    Does anyone else find it, or is it just me? Maybe just good legs today/more distracted by the variability of the scenery

    It might be slightly easier in resistance, but very marginal. Your Snap has a decent power meter, so power is power.

    It's the trainer that reports the watts to the app, not the other way around, so a watt in Zwift is worth a watt in TR and vice versa. It'll be some combination of distraction, better weekend legs and maybe a warmer room now the snow's gone, I suspect :smile:

    Good to know, I thought that would be the case. Will chalk it up to good legs (and the TR work clearly paying off, I hope!)
