I had enough time so I was following the Full Distance Tri Base / Build / Specialty plans.
I had just finished base when the ‘new’ training plans where changed out.
I was 1 week into build (which I had made a few changes due to the new plans) when I was added to the AT beta.
So I was following my plan expecting AT changes, but none happened, it was only then I found out that AT wont work with training plans, I thought it was a bit crap, but thought if this is the way the product is going I need to use PB.
I deleted my plan
Added a plan builder plan, when it was added it made AT adaptions.
Since the PB plan had thrown my current progression, I swapped some workouts out.
This apparently breaks the PB plan (I found out accidentally)
So I deleted it, then, manually deleted all the ‘left-over workouts’
I tried to build a PB plan, backdated to when i started base.
I got a ‘something went wrong’ error splash page.
At this point I decided that essentially AT wont work for me.
I added back the build plan. The next day i thought I shouldn’t give up so easily, ill have another go at making it work.
I completely deleted everything from my calendar between now and my goal event, including all my manually inputted runs and additional non-plan rides
Built a PB plan, back dated.
This time it worked and it added it to my calendar.
I was careful not to change anything etc and the plan ‘looked’ about right.
No adaptions came up, so again it looks like its broken.
Maybe it was because I deleted some runs / swims form the plan, who knows.
So I deleted it all again, and just went back to where I started, with the Build plan.
I have contacted TR support twice, and, both times I felt like I got a shoulder shrug, like, we know its buggy as crap but, it is what it is, or they only answered half my question with a copy-paste standard answer.
So I am in the position of not being able to use AT because:
AT wont work with the core plans - this has to be a massive bug, its essentially 50% of the product.
Plan builder breaks seemingly at the drop of a hat when you touch anything.
Sometimes when you build a PB plan you don’t get adaptions anyway.
So the question is, how do I actually make AT work for me, and my goals.
