Zwift the saga continues

A second attempt at falling in lust with Zwift… Nope that failed too. Not so much as a head turn or slight interest let alone lust, passion or love! I seem to have managed to get a bit further with it in that not only is my trainer connected,  but I managed to find something claiming to be a workout, but having started it I had no idea what was coming up or what phase I was in. The turbo appeared to be relatively free wheeling and this dull as dishwater experience continued for ten minutes. 

Not wanting to waste my entire allocation of training time, and given that I had got out of bed at 5:30am to do this, I quit. It seemed to me that I could sit there free wheeling for the next hour and achieve nothing… Switched on the Garmin, fired up one of my little go to training sessions and cracked on 😉

There simply must be more to this Zwift thing than I am currently ‘getting’. After all it has developed a cult following of a real cross section of athletes in very short order. They seem engaged, some of my friends who’s views I respect use it and regularly post on their results on Strava. So now I am doubly frustrated; I wasted ten minutes on my training time! And secondly I really think I am missing out.

I’m a technologist by profession and a novice triathlete by choice. Zwift is where tech meets cycling. It should be the perfect place for me! I will return…
