Business trip training without power meter

I have been away on business for a week. I managed to train on a spin bike at the local gym (tried Nate’s tip to fit my power pedals to the gym bike but didn’t have the correct hex spanner). Is there a means to enter the TSS so that I can keep track of this secret training?

You can estimate the effort which will give you a TSS number, or if you are syncing your rides with TrainingPeaks and had your HR monitor on you’ll get an hrTSS score which is usually close enough.


This article walks you through how to add a manual workout, which will estimate your TSS based on the duration and your self-reported workout intensity.
