Incorporating group rides into plan builder

Hi,
I’m interested in the plan builder functionality to build up a solid training plan but am not sure if/how regular group rides can be incorporated. As I understand it to build the plan you enter in the hours you’re available to train and the intensity and a plan will be built from those inputs. The problem I have is that I participate in group rides most weeks and I’m not sure how they could be factored into any plan. For example if I simply reduce the number of available hours in trainer road I can’t see how it can factor in the training stress of the group rides which would risk under / over training. Ideally there would be an option to enter planned rides that could be factored in but I’m not sure if that’s possible. Has anyone else figured out a way for managing this ?

Before applying your Plan Builder, enter your group rides as C events. I think you can even use the recurring option if needed.

Once you have those all entered, then run PB and it will work around those events.
