I understand the desire for the new calendar based training plans, and I see how these will work well for many dedicated cyclists. BUT… please bring back the old style plans, as the calendar simply doesn’t work for me.
I’m a casual tri-athlete. So I simply don’t have time to do 3 cycles every week, and also fit in my run and swim training. Also, CASUAL. Sometimes I’ll need to go a week, or a few days, with life getting in the way. With the old plan style I could get a well planned increasing workload, where I would just pick up from where I left off every time I could fit in a cycle. Skipping and going onto the next one is not an option, as then the workload increase is too steep.
I know there is a push week, but often my push is not going to be an exact week. Now I’d have to spend half an hour moving all the remaining workouts in the plan, every time I missed one. Even if a push x days option was added… I want to cycle, not spend my time maintaining a calendar.
Could you please bring back an option to do a training plan, old style?
