On a semi-related note -
I’ve been doing one of the new Training Plans (Gravel Grinder) for a few weeks now. Generally speaking, I like the new plan structure a lot. I appreciate that there is more ‘coaching’ interaction/commentary during the workout explaining how or why a particular workout or block is relevant to the type of event that the plan is intended to train one for.
My question is: is the commentary wholly canned or is it ‘smart’?
For example, if I’m plugging away and hitting all the right metrics for power, cadence, etc… at the end of a block, a comment might appear lavishing some sort of praise: “Great job on that last build! Enjoy some rest now before we get into the real work!” (paraphrasing).
So, would I get the same positive message even if I completely missed the mark? Or would I get realistic feedback based on my actual performance (or lack thereof)? I hope it would be the latter - just wondering if anyone knows?
