Polarized training WITH adaptive training

I’m digging the adaptive training feature but it reset the polarized model I was following… can I do both? Does that even make sense?? Lol

I’m hoping that someone from TR can respond to this. I’m in the AT beta and using plan builder to get ready for Ironman Wisconsin, after using the polarized base plan earlier in the year, which I really enjoyed.

I keep on swapping in workouts from my polarized training plan in hopes that AT will pick up on the fact that I want to used polarized for ironman prep. But It doesn’t seem to be responding accordingly.

TR, any changes coming to the AT algo to accommodate those who prefer to use polarized training?

I don’t believe AT is respecting the polarized plans. It’s addressed somewhere in one of the 2 ginormous AT-beta threads. I wouldn’t count on them “fixing” it any time soon as both polarized and AT are beta/experimental, and there are some other critical features still in-progress for AT.

@porphyro: build a plan, using plan builder. You will have sweet spot base and build. Go into your calendar and click on the notification that says “Base” or “Build”, which ever phase you are currently in. Up pops a menu of options. Top of the right hand column is a bold-face title of your current phase. Click on it. You will be presented with another set of options, one of which is Polarised. Click on that and you’ll get the plan that you’re looking for.
