Extending cool/warm downs is supported on the phone app and coming for the desktop versions if I’m correct. However something else crossed my mind the other day. Some days during a workout, lets say a typical Sweet Spot workout, at the end you find yourself fully able to have done one or a couple of extra intervals. The current option I can think of is picking a +1/2/… version on purpose and quitting at the normal stopping point if it isn’t such a day. This however would mean that in most cases you are dropping out of your workout early, although you completed the planned workout at that point. While it probably doesn’t look that good looking back at your workout, I think the bigger issue is the mental image it leaves, practically you quit a workout. I also don’t really think it should be a very regular thing one would do, but for those amazing days an option to repeat a section on the fly may be a nice solution.
A couple of points that would need to be addressed:
- How many people would find use in such a feature?
- More complicated to implement than the extended cool down, ‘What exactly do you repeat?’
- Is this situation at its core a desirable thing? Extending planned workouts on good days.
I’d love to hear others opinions of this.
