A recent request on the Forum for a 1-hour version of Beacon points out how hard it is to find workouts, at least on the Workouts webpage. It would be useful to be able to specify the duration of the workout desired - 60-90 minutes is too broad (and should probably be listed as 60-89 minutes, instead). It would be more useful if we could fill a field to search for 60-minute workouts (or 45 or 75, etc.), or maybe have 30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 minute checkboxes.
Similarly, it would be useful if we could specify a specific interval duration, like 8 minutes, instead of (or in addition to) burst, short, medium or long. Maybe there needs to be a way to differentiate between minutes and seconds, too, like 8m or 30s.
Finally, interval intensity filtering: How about being able to search on a ranges of percentages of FTP? For example, searching on “Threshold” currently gives a lot of workouts above 100%, when we may want something between 90-100% or at least less than 100%.
Of course this all depends on having workouts cataloged in a database with each of these attributes. Additionally, I’ve noticed that a lot of workouts like https://www.trainerroad.com/cycling/workouts/20753-barren can’t be categorized this way. This probably isn’t a serious problem. But we may want to step back and come up with a system is flexible or easy to make additions to.
