Hey gang!

Yo - you are ambitious! Though if it were me, I would back off the distance in the pool to a distance where there is no discomfort and go from there. Even though it clears up after, I am not so sure it is a good thing. But again, I am not a doc, just someone who has had shoulder injuries and am speaking from (my) experience...

Geo - I tried zwift and rouvy, and never really could get into it for some reason. I would probably use Zwift more if they had a yearly option. I did like some of the rides when I used it, but never had the problems you are experiencing. Doesn't make me want to try it again lol. Bummer about the dog ramp...

Me - going skiing this weekend, we'll see how that goes. Today out on the roads for almost 3 mile run. Felt tough today.

I think part of it is simply placement (in the basement where wi-fi connection is a little spottier); I also got that AppleTV unit which is more stable (doesn't seem to boot me out of a ride as much) - but also seems a bit more temperamental about the bluetooth (doesn't recognize the trainer and HRM as well as the laptop did). Yesterday's bug was some weird one about having to accept updated Apple license agreements - but wouldn't let you do it. Eventually uninstalled/re-installed the Zwift app and it seemed to work again. Today's irritant was back to the bluetooth ....

Anywhoo - when it works, I find Zwift keeps me interested enough through the winter, and definitely takes effort on the harder group rides ... I find myself just noodling around on a virtual ride a lot less ... today's ride - for instance - was a 40-odd person ride, from 2-3.0 w/kg, with a short sprint every other lap, so moderate intensity to begin with and the high-intensity sprints for fun. Ended up being about 21 miles in 50 mins... Basically I just crank the tunes, read the message banter, and the time goes by pretty quickly! It would be better if set-up wasn't a 10-15 minute exercise in frustration every time though :)
