Thought I’d circle back around to clear things up.
Through DM’s, @Jolyzara and I were able to clear up some confusion. For Training Plans scheduled far in advance, the Difficulty Levels indicated for specific workouts will change as your fitness (FTP) and Progression Levels change. As you approach the start of the Training Plan, those Workouts will likely adapt in response to changes in your FTP and/or Progression Levels.
For more information, check out these articles:
@joelc and I are looking into this further. Using admin tools, we can see that the correct adaptation was suggested but we are looking into why @joelc wasn’t presented with the Adaptation/ didn’t see it prior to the Workout.
A couple of others things to clear up:
Scheduled Breakthrough and Stretch Workouts
I swear I once heard @Jonathan say on the podcast that Adaptive Training will never give you a Stretch or Breakthrough workout, or that it would adapt the Plan Builder workouts to match your Progression Level prior to the scheduled date
Stretch workouts are frequently built into Plans. Likewise, in some cases, you can be scheduled breakthrough Workouts. On the other hand, you shouldn’t be scheduled “Not Recommended” workouts. When you are unsure about whether the difficulty of your Workouts are correct, you can always reach out to us, and we’ll look into it for you.
Frequency of Ramp test
it didn’t give me a ramp test this time, probably because I just did FTP Detection last Monday.
Yup, exactly! We won’t schedule a Ramp test again if you have completed one as recently as a week ago. Scheduling Ramp tests too often is counterproductive to making progress.
Rebuilding your Plan
Deleting my plan and recreating resolved it (used the same plan start date in the past).
Thanks for the suggestion, @matthewgreer! This can be a helpful trick.
