I have an iPad to watch moves/play music on and run the TR software from my iPhone which works great… however my work laptop is absolutely locked down in regards to downloading any software including TR .
What is the best way to get a custom workout in within TR without this?
As far as I know (read it on here or maybe the podcast), they are re-developing the workout creator into a web version I think. Which then hopefully solves the OS issues.
I’m running TR from my android phone, and, while this is already a lot better than what zwift and others offer, there are now quite a few TR features I can’t use - workout creator, group workouts, ftp-predicting ramp tests… hopefully one of the new apps will be ready soon…
In the absence of creating my own workouts I would simply look to Full Distance Triathlon Base 2. There are workouts there that are very similar to what the article lists. The only real difference I can see is the recovery valleys in the article are 75% FTP and TRs are 50%. You could just manually bump the intensity for those recovery intervals.
It’s totally possible to create and share! The trick is to create your workout as a .mrc file outside Workout Creator, and you can share that file with others. Once you figure out the format, it’s extremely simple, it’s really just a text file that describes power over time. Here’s how to create a .MRC file..
Just drop the file into your Workout Creator window, and bob’s your uncle. I actually think it’s easier to do it as a MRC file than using the workout creator interface, which is a little unintuitive sometimes.
Thanks. I just made a team, can mess with files if that’s the preferred option…added @Michaelakers1985 but not sure if thats your TR username but ping me a message and let me know if it has worked and if the workouts are what you wanted. Some of the descriptions required interpretation
