Visualization for Outdoor / Outside Workouts (Preview Graph)

Hey Kenroll,

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your request. I shared your idea with one of our Project Managers and we both think that it’s an interesting idea worth looking into. Now that we have outside workouts that can push to your head units, we will likely start to see more interval workouts completed outside on the road, and the context of the power profile would be very welcome when viewing your training at the monthly level.

I am going to pass your suggestion onto the rest of the team for consideration :slight_smile: .

Cheers, and happy training!

I also think this is a really great idea. I have been doing the match/association of outdoor rides to my planned rides and often label the Strava file with the TR name, but having a mini display of the intervals under the map would be really nice to quickly review the structured ones in the calendar. (Still waiting to try the new automatic mode - in rest week!)

You might also export such a combo map/planned interval view back to Strava like you do for indoor workouts already - would give some high vis publicity of the new feature! Not sure how that would interact with the wahoo maps showing KOMs/prs that often pop up sometimes.

@Bryce it would be great to see a view post workout similar to indoor workouts (i.e actually power overlaid on the target power). This would make it much easier to view the level of compliance on an individual workout as well as a quick visual reference of the type of workout.

Hey thanks for the suggestion! I believe if our developers were to incorporate the same display structure for outside and inside workouts, that would definitely be a part of it! It’s hard to say if or when this can get on the roadmap for new features, nonetheless we’ve passed it along to the development team! :raised_hands:

Just to add to this…

changing a future ride to outside loses the image, it’d be good to have an image for outdoor rides (perhaps in green rather than blue to indicate the fact it’s an outside ride).

Also echo that it’d be nice to (have the option to) see the visualization of the segments rather then the map.

And just to add to that…

As someone who does ‘TrainerRoad on the Road’ most weekends (an excellent underrated TR feature when used with a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt btw) I too want to see at a glance the picture of the upcoming workout in calendar also rather than have to read the power profile. It’s just a minor frustration.

Also, it would be good if the title of the logged ride could automatically be named something like ‘TrainerRoad on the Road - Hunter’.

Hi, is there any progress since the original suggestion in late 2019?
Thanks for the effort.

Hey! Its not high-up on the road map as we’re in the final stages of releasing some big features and fixes.
I’ll certainly bump to the team though! :v:

Hi,
Why isn’t there an image of the workout profile in outside workouts? I know outside workouts have ranges, but it the image would give us a great idea of what we are up to.
Could it be added?

Thanks, love the product!

Hey! Moved your request to the existing thread, thanks for the nudge! Its on the team’s radar for sure, but as you can imagine, all of our energy is in getting athletes on Adaptive Training and addressing those issues before considering features like this. Thanks for your patience!

Hey Ivy…if I didn’t set an outdoor workout but my outdoor ride was workout-like… you could use ML to detect the most similar workout of the library and if a similarity score crosses a specific threshold you could link it or use that workout picture or so… what do you think?

We just got a similar request for this!

Just another nudge for this. It drives me crazy that the workout graph disappears when swithc ing workouts to outdoors and I end up switching back and forth repeatedly to see what I have coming up. As we get into outdoor riding season in the northern hemisphere this is far more important to me than AT… Please move this up the priority list. AT is sucking up too many resources and the long list of things like this that just need to be fixed is growing…

Definitely understand that you’d like to see this feature put in place. To speak to the prioritization of our resources, It’s not that we think this isn’t something that should get fixed or implemented, it just comes down to what we think will be the best features to help cyclists get faster most effectively in the immediate future, apart from AT with features such as Updated Training Plans, Workout Levels, and TrainNow Updates).
Thanks for the bump, I’ll pass along to the team!

Does it annoy anyone else that when you switch a workout to Outdoors, you lose the visual representation of it?

I end up either having to switch it back to indoor or searching for the workout by name to see what it looks like.
Surely there’s room for a little picture of the original graph, even if annotated with ‘indoor equivalent’ to make it clear that the outdoor may be subtly different.

Before outdoor workouts were a thing, I always used to just simplify and remember the indoor workout to complete outdoors anyway and whilst I like having it pushed to my Garmin as a proper workout, I’m tempted to go back to the old method just because it’s so annoying not having the graph on display :rofl:

@Crosshair I moved your request under the existing one to keep common requests connected.

That would pretty much satisfy me.

I do the same thing, switch to indoor to see what I am doing or look it up in the library.

At least my Garmin gives me a preview.
