Funny, cause I’ve been thinking the exact same thing
Personally I use(d) to do notes on almost every ride, except for uneventful rides and when not following a plan.
But I totally agree that it’s super useful to revisit old rides. I hate myself for not having made notes when I go back and look at an old ride
I can’t stress enough how useful it is:
1: You can follow your progress and you get a hint of what’s to come, so you can be prepared for “that pesky 3rd interval, where you always bail”.
2: Also interesting to see how the same ride sometimes can result in totally different notes, just to throw any fixed expectations off the cart…
3: Injuries can also be tracked.
4: Notes to self.
Even though I understand the reasons for changing the workouts in the plans, I feel it’s quite a loss that I’m not able to revisit an old ride at a certain week in the plan I’m doing. Especially if the workout is almost identical, but just tweaked a bit at that point in the plan.
I also find it interesting to read other people’s notes - but there’s just so few
