I know how to match an outdoor ride with a planned indoor workout but why and when should I do it and what is the benefit? (Especially if I have not more than one planned workout per day.)
When NOT matching both workouts, I see those side by side with the outdoor ride checkmarked and the indoor workout skipped. Seeing this I automatically assume that I did that outdoor ride instead of the planned indoor workout AND also keep seeing the workout that was originally planned for that day (I think this is a benefit).
Then after matching there is no more skipped workout to see as it gets associated with the outdoor ride. So the benefit might be to have not “skipped” anything…but does skipping lead to any consequence in some statistics or whatsoever?
Whereas the downside is that you cannot immediately see in the calendar which workout got replaced by the outdoor ride (you have to click into the outdoor ride to see).
Am I missing something?
Finally the second aspect of the question:
Should I only match outdoor rides to planned indoor workouts if the ride roughly matched the workout in terms of training benefit (TSS and/or interval structure) or does it not matter and I sould match in any case?
