Hey @TheRow1986 ! Welcome to the TrainerRoad forum! So glad you are loving Adaptive Training so far!
It sounds like you’d like more customisable Training Plans to account for your individual recovery needs?
To accommodate for athletes’ preferences and differing recovery needs, we plan on making some updates to Plan Builder .
These changes will allow you to select which days you want to train, the duration you have available for each training day, and when doing so, add in how many days of intensity you want.
This will be guided intelligently by Plan Builder and will allow us to better accommodate different recovery needs, and time available.
In the meantime, this is a great approach to customising your Plan, as Adaptive Training will know exactly how to respond to this. When you skip a Workout, and perhaps replace with another Workout, Adaptive Training will adapt your Training Plan to keep you on track and progressing.
You can use Workout Alternates to find a Workout with a similar profile, but a little easier. Alternatively, you could use TrainNow to find an Endurance workout tailored to your fitness to replace that original Workout.
You can learn more about these features here:
Absolutely right!! I don’t recommend deleting the originally scheduled Workout from your Calendar until your Training Plan has adapted in response to the Workout you skipped and subsequently substituted.
Using this approach while we work on these updates will allow you to benefit from the intelligence of Adaptive Training and ensure that your Training Plan is always tailored and progresses based on your unique fitness level.
Let me know if any of you guys have questions! My DM’s are always open too .
