You asked for it; now Recurring workouts have launched on TrainerRoad’s Calendar! It makes it super easy to schedule that repeating group ride or the Friday TR workout that you always do.
Adding a Recurring Workout
Here’s my current calendar. Let’s say I want to fill in all of those Friday’s with an easy recovery workout that I made with our Workout Creator.
I click on the day to add a workout like normal but now have a new “repeating” option.
Recurring Workout Options
I have five options for repeating workouts: Does not repeat, daily, weekly, monthly or custom.
For this workout, I’ll just choose weekly. It will now repeat on my calendar until I choose to remove it.
Deleting Recurring Workout Series
To remove it I can click on any of the workouts and click Delete. I have the option to delete just that activity or that activity and future uncompleted activity.
Custom Recurring Workout Option
You can also choose “custom” which gives you even more control. You can have workouts repeat every three days, every other week, once a month, etc. You can also specify when a repeating workout ends.
This is pretty neat. Here I can say that this workout repeats every three weeks on Tuesday and Friday and will do this three times before it doesn’t schedule any future workouts.
The custom section is powerful and should let you do exactly what you want.
Outside Rides can be Recurring too!
Have a Saturday group ride that you like to do? You can also make those group rides “recurring” and have them show up on your calendar.
Moving, Pulling, Pushing, Copying, Etc
If you move a workout around it, get’s “de-linked” from the recurring activity. This is how other calendars work (like Google Calendar), and it feels very natural.
That’s it! It’s a very handy feature that I’m sure will get a lot of use.
If you have any questions, let me know!
