Feature request - swim and run workout naming conventions

I’m just starting Full-Distance Triathlon mid-volume build, having completed base. I’d love to see swim sessions given the same sort of names as the cycling workouts. So, for example, a warmup/drills/8x100/5x200/drills/cool down might have a name, and differing intensities could have + or - numbers.

Similarly for runs.

The grouping doesn’t have to be as distinct as with the cycling plans, but you might have a name for all the ‘base runs’ - followed by a time. A run with (say) 4, 6 or 8 1m sprints, 2m recoveries might be "Lofty, 30.4, or 40.6, or 40.8 (30, 40 or 40 minutes, respectively, with 4, 6 or 8 sprints respectively).

I feel like that would make it easier to see the week at a glance.

Thanks so much for the suggestion!

In the future we want to expand our support of triathlon specific features, so I will share your idea with the team for consideration :+1:.

I’m loving the expansion of support for triathlon - the TR plans for the 70.3 and 140.6 are the main reason I’m doing my first IM in December!

An alternative for the swims would be to just name the workout as per what the main set is; that’s how I write it down in my paper training log.

I have noticed that the sets are much easier to remember, when you realise that there are three main types.

  1. warmup/drill/x by 100m easy-mod with 5s recovery/ x by 200m moderate-hard with 45(down to 20s) recovery/drill/cool down
  2. warmup / drill / x by 100m easy-mod with 5s / x by 150m hard with (reducing) recoveries / x by 50m sprints / drill / cool down
  3. warmup / distance / cool down.
