Make both Run and Cycling Training Plans available at the same time


(Rem Lee) #1

I have just started running on Zwift, and am doing the 3: 13.1 plan, however am keen to build my cycling endurance and would like to also be able to follow a cycling plan, in particular, the ‘build me up’ plan, over the winter months…

However, at the moment, it looks as though you can only do one plan at a time; could Zwift consider making it possible to do both a run and cycling plan at the same time?

Hi Rem,

The plans were really designed as single-sport training plans. From a training load perspective, they really aren’t designed to be paired up, especially not with each other. A good multisport plan takes into account training load from the other sports. But these plans aren’t designed in that way. I couldn’t in good conscience recommend that you were to do both plans simultaneously. Both plans you mention are on the more taxing end of the spectrum. Neither plan was designed for a multi-sport athlete, but should you want to incorporate some cycling, I’d recommend something on the lower intensity end of the spectrum while you’re in the midst of the 13.1 running plan.

Ride On,

Jordan

Jordan,

thank you for the reply, and do take your point about risk of over-training… Perhaps, a tri-specific plan would be an idea for the future?

What I love most about the training plans is the scheduling and prompting, which has really helped keep me on track these last few months, where I admit to combining Zwift Academy with the run plan…

Love Zwift; thanks for all the great work that’s gone into it!

Hi there,

Just bought a trainer and a treadmill, mainly for Zwift usage!

Thanks for your wonderfull software

I too would like to be able to enroll in two different plans at the same time, one for running and one for riding.

Please implement this Zwift :slight_smile:
