Would TrainNow ever recommend a recovery week?

I am no longer following a plan. Instead for my last 12 workouts I only used TrainNow and did whatever it recommended at the moment I started my training. Today I’ll train again and the next workout recommended is again from the “Attacking” type (Bird -1).

I wonder: If I’d continue to do what TrainNow recommends, will I ever have something like a recovery week, with several workouts in a row being low-intensity, endurance focused?

Have people seen this happen in practice? What would it depend on? Will e. g. my RPE feedback after the workout influence this?

Nope, as it stands right now, it is not setup to offer recovery weeks. At most, it will lean towards recommending Endurance rides.

TrainNow has a relatively narrow scope, and it is not meant to offer the functions seen in a dedicated training plan.

Probably worth reading through some of the TR support info, if you haven’t already done so.


Great question! I’ve been doing a combination of Train Now and self selecting workouts, so I make my own recovery weeks when needed. I’m over plans. Build phase always destroys me, even with AI.
