I too am finding these new flexible training plans incredibly frustrating.
I just signed up for another - the TT Tune UP plan. It’s Saturday morning here in Australia. The first three workouts say “finish by Sunday Night”. Does that mean I complete three workouts in the next 36-40hours? Or, does it mean I choose two to do: one today (Saturday) and one tomorrow (Sunday)?? Which one do I leave out???
The original plans, under the “Workout” tab were brilliant. I’ve been using them all year. I’ve gone back to them due to the frustration of the new flexible plans (If I miss a day, I can still do it and get back on track). However, the days (within each week) are, now, always out of order!!! E.g. 12 Week Winter Plan (advanced), Week 3: (1) Active Recovery, (2) Cadence into Over Under, (3) Day 4 - Rest??? (4) Day 7 - Rest??? (5) Endurance, (6) Endurance with max sprints (7) High Cadence to standing.
When looking at the same plan on Zwift workouts, the workouts for each day are completely different! https://whatsonzwift.com/workouts/12wk-winter-plan-advanced#week-3
Here’s, what I would love:
Put the new flexible training plans into the workout tab.
Make the set plans consistent with the Zwift Workouts page (that way I can view the plan without having to log in to the game).
Let me select a plan (e.g. TT Tune Up) and complete it when I choose/can (I always complete every workout across a plan, i.e. 10-12 week FTP, doing everything possible to complete each day within a weekly schedule).
The result would be a brilliant “flexible” training plan!
