When you are reviewing a workout under the name it lists the TSS, duration, iF, and work. The work value lists the units as “kJ(Cal)”. So it is a bit confusing, are those units kilojoules or kilocalories?
I am looking at Fletcher for instance and it lists 812 kJ(Cal) as the work value. Since kJ is the lead I assume kilojoules is the unit but when we convert that to kilocalories it seems unreasonably low in terms of dietary calories (ie kilocalories) – working out to a bit under 200 kilocalories. 812 kilocalories seems about right for a 1.5 hour session. Looking at the data from a Fletcher workout I performed last fall (in one of my many cycling apps) shows a calorie burn of 816 calories. So I assume the number is NOT kilojoules but kilocalories, correct?
As always I appreciate your comments, answers, and discussion. Thanks!
