Thanks all! I appreciate the thoughts. I have a big box fan upstairs I will haul downstairs for now, and may look for something smaller but as effective. Will look at the turbo fans. Definitely also need some kind of desk.
I had been using either my iPhone or iPad for Zwift, and have not really done much with Systm yet other than explore, but did the same there. So ANT+ did not work for me. The HRM3 HR sensor does connect of course to my Edge, but that does not seem to be a way to connect to the Zwift and Systm apps. I guess I could consider using my MacBook Pro instead if that is better. Either way, I definitely need some sort of desk. I do have a Manhasset music stand I could use for now. But would be a little worried if I had my laptop on it. In years past, I tried to do Zwift and training on my wife’s Schwinn bow flex type bike But was frustrated with how it didn’t work well with Zwift, not knowing about the Wahoo system yet. But I could just put my iPad or phone on the little stand the Schwinn/Bowflex bike had.
My wife correctly insisted that I have a mat for sweat, and I have an old yoga mat down temporary right now and and inexpensive Amazon type exercise mat coming in the same dimensions that the Wahoo one is.
I have not tried RGT yet and will check that out. I had not participated in Sufferfest before, and will look at that. I have enjoyed GCN, and GMBN.
I learned that in Systm, you can’t really just hit “Ride” and just ride around like you do in Zwift, but instead it has workouts, and that you may choose a plan. I will need to decide what is best for me. I just finished a short version of Rebecca’s Private Idaho where I live in Idaho, and want to upgrade my cycling endurance further than the typical two or three hour efforts to something where I can do at least the 56 mile gravel ride which would probably be about a 4 1/2 or four hour effort for me if I am trained decently. So I was considering joining the RPI basecamp winter training, which uses Training Peaks, (and has group rides in Zwift) in addition with my Alpine ski work. I am a professional instructor/coach and spend a lot of time on the mountain which is great for strength but not so much for cardio.
Another option would be to come up with a plan within Wahoo Systm that matches with my somewhat divergent training needs, and just skip the RPI Basecamp. But was thinking some coaching more toward longer endurance might not be bad. Especially as I am turning 60 next month.
I made a couple edits to my original post to correct typos and the forum system hid my original post temporarily because it thought it might be spam or something. Supposedly the original post will show back up soon. In the meantime, basically I am new to the group, just got a Wahoo Kickr, and have other various gear such as a Garmin Edge and some sensors, and am interested in how best to use Wahoo Systm for my winter training. (It is back ip now)
Thanks all for the help so far!
