OK, since my last post was kind of a downer, how about something more fun?
Anyone using Zwift for training purposes? Wondering if it might be a fun holiday gift for a certain special someone in my life.

Yes, well worth a monthly subscription in the winter months.

i prefer TrainerRoad since it was easier to set up, and i like the “less social” aspect. just an introvert’s perspective :). also, doesn’t your special someone read these threads? or are you asking for a friend? :)

Hi Silky, we do have TrainerRoad and we like it a lot. But wondering if the social aspects of virtual racing in Zwift might have a higher enjoyment factor, instead of the sufferfest feeling of knowing how many intervals you have remaining on TrainerRoad. Also, yes that certain special someone does have an AP presence, but I keep things unpredictable so she never knows what I'm up to :)

Best training decision I have ever made for the cold months! Social aspect is great but I especially enjoy the workout programs and although cartoony the scenery is fantastic as well.

I use Zwift and it's been great and motivating. You can engage in the social aspect as much or little as you want, but I can say the few "races" that I've participated in there have definitely motivated me to push way harder than I normally would.

OK, you've convinced us! Hope to see you all on the virtual trail sometime soon.

Wait, shouldn't it be as sucky as possible to build up mental toughness? Like just a resistance knob and no display?
