When you add a B race, you’d want to replace the current workout for the day with the race - I’m not sure at the moment if Plan Builder will adjust to that for you, but it’s an easy change on the calendar also. There have been hints dropped of Plan Builder helping to account for sickness, vacations, etc too.
Optionally, you might wish to add an opener the day before your race? If you’re not sure, that would be worth testing early in the season to see how you feel and how that fits in with the rest of your LV plan.
When I have a race that the date might change, I put it on the calendar and leave the scheduled workout in place also just in case I decide not to race, or if the date changes - I can also have an idea of what the scheduled TSS and workout structure was for that day, as I may try to replicate it. Just leaves me more options and feeling “on plan”.
Thanks for reaching out, I’m really sorry for the confusion.
When adding a “B” Race, the behavior is as follows:
Drop the workout before, and replace it with a race opener if you have that option selected in Plan Builder
Drop the workout on the race date and replace with the B Race
Drop the workout after to allow time to recover
This is the desired behavior because a B race is somewhat of a big deal, and we want to allow for a little bit of freshness going in, and a little bit of recovery coming out of the event.
If you want to simply replace a workout with a weeknight race, then this is when you would want to add a “C” Race. When this recalculates, it will simply swap out the planned workout for the “C” Race.
Sadly, there is no way to undo the reprocessing action once you’ve taken it. What you’ll need to do is find the annotation of what plan you’re currently in, and count from that annotation to see what week of that plan you’re on. Then, find that plan in the Training Plan catalog and manually add back in the workouts that were unintentionally dropped.
