Companion App and Custom Workouts

Hi there, not sure if this a bug, a glitch, or the way Zwift is. Loaded up a custom 10 week training plan, everything looked great, started my first workout using Apple TV with everything connected, but the companion app didn’t load the usual workout interface. I didn’t have the mini-map, couldn’t see the ERG controls, or nearby zwifters. Is this normal for custom workouts or was this just a weird glitch?
