What happens if I don’t create a plan but use the recommended workout everyday?
You get fitter with no specific focus.
You have to schedule your own rest weeks because there will be no built in periodisation.
It can be a great tool to use for “filler” workouts within a larger plan, or as something to use as a one-off way to get a recommended workout if you’re not on a plan right now. For the long-term, though, we’d recommend using Plan Builder!
I think the recommended workout would be a good option if you knew that your training time was going to be hit and miss for a while (e.g. like travelling a lot over the festive season) and you didn’t have any challenging goals before mid-May.
I can also see it working well for someone who doesn’t have a particular goal, and who enjoys group rides a couple of times a week, but wants to rev the engine a bit once or twice midweek. I actually suspect that describes an awful lot of club cyclists.
Thank you for all your help.
Just created my first training plan.
