I had to change the date of an A event and used Plan Builder to recalculate the plan (which is just brilliant ).
When I first set up the plan, I did the sensible thing (doesn’t happen too often) and chose a slightly lower volume than I thought I could manage. Plan Builder thus recommended a mid-volume plan with which I have been happy so far. Whenever I did have some more time and energy, I could always add a low-intensity unstructured ride (rather than a workout).
In the recalculation, however, Plan Builder did not even ask for my weekly volume but just recommended high-volume right away. Why is that?
The second A event, not the one I had to reschedule from next Tuesday to Wednesday, is a 100km ITT over rolling terrain (1,000m of climbing). I first categorised it as a rolling road race, but then changed it to Gran Fondo due to the more steady nature of a TT.
Edit: Okay, I did an average of 443 TSS for the past 32 weeks on the mid-volume plan… So, Plan Builder calculates the recommended volume based on that, right?
