So Id just completed SSB1 and was due to start SSB2 this week, all well and good. I had my booster jab on Monday and that knocked me off my stride for a few days so I pushed my Tuesday ramp test to Wednesday (yesterday) and it showed a decrease in my FTP but if Im honest didnt really feel engaged with the test. So Id rather do some bespoke SS / z2 this week get my mojo back and start ssb2 next week.
With that in mind other than deleting weeks and redepositing the workouts in the weeks how can I push the workouts all back a week ? If I do this will it knacker up the AT algorithm? I did a quick search and looks like the feature was available and may of been removed ?
Anyway suggeestions appreciated.
I would just use Train Now this week, let AT make any adjustments it feels to subsequent workouts and just carry on without pushing any weeks. Should sort itself out
The Push/Pull week feature was removed from the calendar a while ago, slightly annoying in a first world manner.
The current way to do what you want is to click on a day in the calendar and from the resulting popup choose “Add an Annotation”. In the next dialog give a reason and enter a start and end date and then your plan should be adjusted.
Thanks for the information. I wanted to complete a ramp test ahead of starting SSB2 not only to ensure my zones are accurate but to see progress from completion f SSB1
I tried the Annotation function - it then wanted to adjust my workouts going forward that wasnt helpful as I want to do the ramp test and do all the workouts (unlike many people Im not training for a specific event)
Suppose I could just do a Train Now this week and a ramp test next week but not amend anything. Probably over thinking this
Yeah, the annotation method triggers AT to do its thing whereas Pushing a week didn’t.
- Skip this week’s workouts and just schedule a Ramp Test as the first workout of next week.
- Use Train Now for this week and schedule a Ramp Test for next week.
- Use the annotation feature and let AT do its thing and swap out a workout for the Ramp Test. Do what you feel you can this week.
If you aren’t training for a specific event and since you’ve just completed SSB1 none of the above will have any significant detrimental impact on your training. I’d be inclined to do number 3 - AT will change your workouts anyway as you progress through the block.
Thats what I would do
Its actually what I’m doing! I was supposed to ramp test this week but had my Jab sunday evening and didnt want to push my heart that hard so soon. So I used Train Now yesterday, might do a prescribed one today and ramp next week. AT will sort it all out.
Yup thanks for the info Ill not over engineer the solution. Do what I can this week (its Christmas as well and my wife will divorce me if I train xmas day ) do a ramp next week and get back into the flow.
I redid my FTP this week and got a 6.6% increase (compared to a 4% decrease post booster) and am now continuing with SSB2 all good
