Hello, just started with Trainerroad and must bring unfortunately a first bad feedback.
But lets start with the good - I have experience on Rouvy, ICTrainer, Zwift and Trainingpeaks. I am able to compare - Trainerroad has as of now the best Trainingsplans and seamless logic for workout, adaption and workouts. Kudos for that.
But the UserExperience on the Page itself is bad.
Its full blown of Google Analyitcs, cross read trackers and scripts.
Just to give some examples, the page took 3,5 minutes to load completely in the NAT. (Windows 11 Pro with Chrome + iPad OS on iPad Pro, also the App seems to be not responsive enough)
I debugged it with the Chrome console and beside a hell lot of tracking, google analyitcs, failed requests to datadoghq-browser-agent.com also Cross-Origin Read Blocking (CORB) kicked in.
How can i quantify it. I have in my NAT with wife and Kids 16 devices in my local network.
We had in the last 24h from the devices 33k requests via my router.
And Trainerroad is the only one lagging extreme and overblown with tracking, and scripts.
I think you can do that better. Less is more!!
Works for me just fine and I greatly prefer targeted ads over random ads. I tried to go fully incognito on the web for a while and got sick of useless untargeted ads. Turns out I really like being targeted.
