This week I returned to Trainerroad after a year’s absence to try out the fancy new adaptive training.
Did a ramp test last week on zwift so skipped it and rode sweetspot outdoors for an hour and trainerroad went ahead and adjusted my workouts accordingly. For the record the app has me marked as progression level 7.8 for sweetspot.
First workout then was laughably Truchas +3 (8.3) which I marked as very hard. I managed it but god damn that is an insane recommendation for your first workout of the first week of base training! I had to drop the intensity down to 95% but I made it through.
After marking it as very hard I’d have thought the coming sweetspot workouts would be tailored to suit but instead the difficulty has actually went up! I don’t even know what to say about the same workout being chosen twice in a row other than this is pretty frickin lame.
The next three weeks in a row are even worse with another two repeat workouts in a row at silly high difficulty
Seriously guys, what is going on here?
Please don’t tell me to just select a different workout either - I shouldn’t have to do that.
