Ed 346 - you asked for feature ideas

Second post. Podcast edition 346, you asked for feature requests. Here you go.

“one more set/rep?”

You start off, say you’re doing Icefall -3. four sets of ss sprinkled with up/downs peaking at 100%. Or Shumards Peak threshold… long reps 2% above ftp.

You’re feeling like you won’t get through but after the first set you think; “I may have a shot at this". And you tick them off until you get into the middle of the last set and the mind/body have that symbiotic thing going on where we’re all working together to get it done.

You know that this last set is supposed to be hard but it adds real value to strength & fitness. You feel ok and the fuzzy logic flows that one more set will also help.

You finish the last set and there’s a small window (perhaps before the cool down or the tail) where a button appears (a bit like the button that adds time to the warmup/cool down). You click the button and one more set (or rep) appears on the workout. You crush it and slump onto the bars knowing that you just did an extra set, one more than your buddies. You open up the IPA with a smug grin. “I made myself faster”.

Not a ‘must have’ feature but a nice increment. It’s not on all workouts but you can filter for it.

I guess we could just do a second session but once you’ve warmed down you usually wouldn’t open up a new workout session. The moment has passed. Besides, were vain, we wouldn’t do two TR posts on Strava because the kudoses generated by one big workout are worth more than the dilution kudos of two. Thanks for considering.

  • • Love your saas product and love the auto/manual AI/ML strategy you’re employing, I’m a luddite on a kurt dumb trainer because I prefer to make my own power choices but I like the alternatives offered, the new categories of intensity and the prediction of whether it’s achievable, stretch etc… This is industry leading stuff. Keep it up, it’s worth the $5
  • • You have created a great CS team. All are good and responsive. Special shoutout to JJ in that team. Unfair to the rest to single him out.

This post has allowed me to procrastinate on my goal writing and today’s workout Clouds Rest +6. Better get on and do that. Might wash the dog first…
