Even if PLs accurately reflected your A race I’m not sure there’d be an issue. E.g. Let’s assume after a 12 and 24 hour TT (which blows my mind by the way!) that your Endurance and Tempo PLs were at 10.0. That’s fine - after those events I seriously doubt you’d be jumping straight into another block where you’re targeting improvements in those energy systems. I assume you’d likely have a block of recovery where you’re either not doing structured rides or if you do pick a TR ride it will be an Achievable one. And then quite likely after that you’d look to target a different energy system e.g. A block of VO2 to raise your FTP/ceiling. Similar for any other A race - e.g. If you’ve peaked for something punchy and achieve very high VO2 or Anaerobic PLs, then you’d want to recover and then go back to some base training before building again, so by the time you get back to trying to raise your high intensity PLs they will likely have degraded to a level that enables you to do that.
Our system will intelligently detect races/rides that are way outside the bounds of where your current PLs are and exclude them so as not to derail your plan. We also have the ability to manually exclude these kinds of outlier efforts from PLs and AI FTP Detections if we need to override things.
They obviously don’t trust the results in all cases enough to go live. I wish they would exclude the cases they are worried about with a message like “PL cannot be calculated for this workout” then release to opt in status.
Is it possible to at least release to Early Access the AI/ML assessment of an outside ride, even if it doesn’t feed directly into adaptations? This would go a long way in showing progress and help users assess the training value of unstructured rides.
Additionally, I assume this applies (or will apply) to structured rides where intervals are added or skipped, rather than just a pass/fail.
The analysis is just based on your survey response, qualitative. There isn’t any detailed quantative analysis at the moment. At the extreme, you could tell the system you’ve passed with flying colours, when in fact you struggled and came nowhere near close thus misleading the system.
Are you talking about for an outside workout? If so, I go into my Garmin and use the workout menu to repeat, pause, or skip intervals. I can’t remember how you do this on Wahoo, but I’m almost certain you can.
on that note… I’d also like to be able to skip or shorten a recovery valley. essentially have the same audio button interface but for workouts: pause, play, stop, forward, backward. Essentially a more potent lap button.
I understood the original comment to be in the context of inside workouts on the TR mobile App. Outside workouts are more malleable to ones taste with the lap button and the options the headunit and it’s workout interface provides.
I‘d like a forward/backward button for inside workouts on the TR mobile app. But as others mentioned maybe this request should be moved outside by either you or the person that initially made the suggestion. It’s a valid one imho.
