I’ve seen this mentioned before and I think I remember a TR team member saying it was a programming issue that couldn’t really be fixed because it’d be nearly impossible for them to recognize the watts/intervals your doing and correlate that to their workout catalog. So I have an idea for a solution…
Right now, if you do an outside workout, TR doesn’t give you ‘credit’ for doing it. It doesn’t show up dark green in your career and I don’t think it shows as you’ve adhered to your scheduled training plan. All it does is pushes the workout to your device. When you do the workout, then (at least for me) it grabs it from strava and shows the TSS and time/power metrics. I haven’t done an inside workout on TR since April, so it looks like I have 0% adherence to plan, despite doing outside workouts all summer.
My suggestion is that if you name the workout in strava or wahoo or garmin (or wherever TR is pulling the completed outside activity from) the name of the TR workout…TR recognizes that name and gives you credit for completing the workout.
For instance if I have Tallac +3 on my calendar, I schedule it outside, it pushes to my Wahoo, I go complete the workout. It auto-uploads to wahoo, which auto syncs to strava. I go into strava and name my ‘afternoon ride’ as ‘Tallac +3’. That syncs back to TR, it recognizes that I named the ride Tallac +3 (either in the title or description) and then shows that I completed Tallac +3 in the TR calendar as an outside workout.
