I’m happy to share my calendar, but I’m not sure how you do that! Can you explain how?

Easiest way is to open your TR Calendar in a web browser, copy the entire address, and paste here. See mine for an example. Your account must be set to Public (not Private) in order for others to access it).

Thanks, the other Chad.

Here is my calendar.


Fantastic podcast and well done Doug :+1:

This podcast couldn’t have come at a better time. I subscribed to TR last week to get back to previous fitness levels, if not fitter.

I have no plans to race, but my goals in cycling for 2021 and beyond is to get back into road cycling (after a few years out) with a number of long endurance ride events I want to tick off the bucket list.

I wasn’t sure TR was the program to suit my goals, but I took the plunge and happy to hear Doug’s story to realise I haven’t made a wrong choice subbing to TR!

Man, this podcast came at the perfect time for me. I can relate so well to this. The guilt of missing a workout, the sour mood, the late night workouts, juggling family and work. All of it. I feel seen. Lol.


Great podcast and story. You have a lot of stuff going on, Doug! Definitely demonstrates that we can all carve out time and still improve using low volume plans!
