Baird Outdoor equivalent query

I’m setting out my weeks outdoor training and was adding “Baird”.

Baird has a TSS of 69.

The outdoor version is Maude which has a TSS of 60.

I was under the impression that your statement - “Workouts completed outside are less efficient than indoor workouts, meaning you may need to ride longer than prescribed to hit the training stress target.”

However, this workout is a “reduction” in TSS by 9.

Is this okay?

I was under the impression that this applies only to workouts that consist of long sustained efforts (like Antelope) because outside you will most likely have to coast (or equivalently reduce power) for appreciable percentage (10-20% or more?) of the time.
