Is there an item in the feature backlog enabling a user to indicate more frequent recovery weeks? A 2 on - 1 off template is common among older athletes and those who don’t recover as quickly (like myself).
If not, is there guidance I could leverage to determine how to break up the current training plans into this cadence?
Good stuff. I’m learning that Build beats me up and I may need to move to something like that. Currently I just started making z2 days easier (Pettit-1) and recovery weeks easier (SSB1 recovery week). I will look to make those 2 hour Sunday rides a bit easier as well because I’m carrying too much fatigue into the next week.
Hi, I do best with 3-week training periods (2 progressive training weeks followed by 1 week rest). Many plans use a 4-week period, but TR often schedules 5 weeks before a rest week. There’s not enough recovery in that plan for older riders. I’ve seen the suggestions for a 9-day week. But I’d rather be able to choose the the number of weeks per block in the periodization schedule. Thanks.
I hear you. They all merge together. It surprises me that it’s not higher priority given how many high frequency requests it would solve. I was pretty surprised to see running was a higher priority than masters plans and recovery weeks.
That would be amazing! I actually do better with more weeks of training before my recovery week. This week was my first week back after the recovery and it hurts to bring my heart rate back to what used to be a comfortable uncomfortable high rate.
While talking about making plans even more personalized, - it would be fantastic if we in the builder had the opportunity to enter how much time we had for training each day,as in Monday, 75min; Tuesday, 0min, Wednesday 90min etc.
Sadly, they removed the Push-Pull tools that were key in the usage of my Alternate plans, so it is not as easy to do now. It can be done, but it takes a sledgehammer approach now and I have not taken the effort to document the path because it kinda sucks to be honest.
