How AT likes if I’d like to do bigger manual modifications to the training plan? I would keep all workouts, just changing their place & maybe adding something (like recovery or Z2 rides).
I’m into triathlon and the overall training load (together with life stress) tends to grow quite high even with low-volume plans (at least for me). As I’m not getting any younger (43 y), I also feel that the recovery needs may be growing. This leads to a need to manually adjust the plan every now and then (e.g. skipping workouts, adding recovery via annotations).
Can someone tell, how AT sees if I would e.g.
- Manually add recovery week in between a plan (e.g. SSB or whatever) - just via pushing the plan to make a way for a recovery week?
- Manually adjusting the whole plan to ~follow 9-day training week (obviously prolonging the total duration of the plan)? This would make it possible to likely add e.g. one Z2 ride to the “week”.
- Is it so that adding workout through “train now” would be understood by AT (e.g. in the 9-day training week scenario).
Would I still get the benefits of AT (which I very much like) or would I just screw AT’s head?
I tried to find answers from the forum & TR blog, but couldn’t find clear answers.
