Zwift Training Plan All Available? [April 4, 2024]

Hi, I enrolled on my first training plan on Sunday, the FTP builder. All 6 weeks workouts are available to me and every workout says Do by Sat Evening per image.

This feels like a bug but can anyone confirm if this is normal please?

Short answer;
That’s normal/expected behaviour - all workouts should be available to you, to do as you want (in whatever order). Though I agree the “do by Saturday evening” text is superfluous, as it’ll still be there when you do a workout from the plan next week.

Slightly meandering answer;
Workout plans used to have a prescribed order that workouts could be completed (with enforced breaks between them); this was somewhat relaxed in March 2022 [link to notes] where each week’s workouts would be unlocked on the Monday, with no restrictions on what order that week’s workouts were completed in.
The May 2022 update [link to notes] removed the week-by-week restriction of the plan, basically giving everyone free reign to pick and choose from a workout plan (over however many weeks it’ll take for them to complete it all).

Wouldn’t it have been prudent to remove “do by Saturday evening” altogether?

Appreciate the quick reply. Kr

Hi @B_CN

I agree and you’re probably right that the “do by Saturday evening” verbiage should likely have been removed altogether once all the training plan workouts became available to access from the primary Training/Workout menu.

I believe I already raised this concern to the team a few weeks back but it remains to be seen if and when the “do by Saturday evening” verbiage will be removed, as it is admittedly confusing. That being said, Zwifters can effectively ignore that as it should have no bearing on when the workouts are due.

It does not seem that the “do by Saturday evening” verbage has been removed…

Also, it’s frustrating that there is no schedule of when to do the workouts - I have to put when I worked out in my personal calendar in order to keep track of workouts. There is no way to know if I am on track within the Zwift program which is unfortunate.

Hi everyone! Welcome to Forums. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this thread. It’s Juan here from Zwift.

As you have mentioned, because training plans are flexible and can be completed in any order, expiration date only reflect the last day of the current week. The “do by” message will be removed in a later version of Zwift. I’d like to suggest you check periodically this forum thread.

Regarding schedule to do them. The Companion app on your phone will show a list of upcoming workouts so you can see what’s in store. You can learn more about it Zwift companion app by clicking here.

On Zwift Companion you will have the ability to see the full week’s training plan, it helps you consistently complete your workouts.

I hope this information has been useful. If there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know. You are always more than welcome
