Upload Run and Swim workouts from Garmin/Strava to TR calendar (Feature Request)

@Nate_Pearson I’d also personally agree to a staged development. I think most of us who’ve used this software for a season or more have seen real-terms incremental progress and so we know what a staged release looks like from a training perspective.

Granted there’s a lot of noise coming from the community on Jonathan’s transition to triathlon in the podcast but no one serves runners well IMHO. This could be a step forward in a space that has seen so much recent progress in terms of footwear (with obvious impact on the sport as a whole) and next-to none in terms of software and training.

I think you could do the same for swimming with relative ease - imported runs/swims entering the calendar automatically and auto-populating AT according to time with a questionnaire to populate feedback for the AT algorithm’s refinement.

I understand fully that this wouldn’t be the solution some might want long term, but it would give TR the beginnings of a dataset that would actually have a potentially HUGE impact on endurance sports altogether.

I’d be down for a beta group if you’re looking for volunteers!

TrainerRoad specifically says they use the 1-10 scale:

Besides that, the entered intensity times the time gives TSS, so there isn’t even an argument here.

That’s what I said: It would become obvious the TSS estimates and workout descriptions don’t match. The TSS calculation itself works, but the data it’s fed with is not consistent with the workout, so the numbers in the plans are off.

Yup.

Drop them a post on this thread and they should sort it out:

I reported this 2 years ago already, and the response was

…our development team is actually already working on fixing this; however, I don’t have an ETA of when this would be updated…

Together with an explanation of how to fix it manually after every workout :roll_eyes:

As you can see Nate, you don’t need to get run import working for us to complain about broken TSS numbers!

Hey, ya’ll.

I’m happy to announce we have 10(!) engineers currently working on the following running features:

  • Show your runs on the calendar
  • Auto match completed runs to planned runs
  • Run analysis page
  • Running PRs

They are about two weeks in. We’re going to launch these features then look at usage and get feedback.

Wow! That’s an impressive push into running. Thanks Nate and TR team for driving this clearly you’re not just trying to check the box with so much talent dedicated to this. I can’t wait to see how this evolves over the coming months and years.

I’m not a triathlete (by no means), but as an occasional multi-sport person (cycling, running, hiking, skiing, swimming…) I am very glad to see this. Hopefully the first step of many beyond cycling.

Just saw the news!!! Sweet! I need 10 engineers on my programs, too.

Hey…If it pays solidly above 6 figures and can be remote…maybe?
