We’ve added a couple Calendar features today. A list of upcoming features can be viewed here: TrainerRoad Calendar has Launched! - List of upcoming features!

Move Plan Start Annotations

Before we had plan start annotations tied to the first workout. The problem with that is if you decided to have your first few rides be outside the plan start date wouldn’t be represented correctly.

You can now move your plan start around to your heart’s content and it doesn’t have to be tied to a workout.

Past Plans added to Calendar

We added annotations for all of the past plans you’ve done if:

  1. You did at least one workout on that plan
  2. You didn’t delete the plan

This still doesn’t make it super clear to see past plans as you have to scroll and find them. We’re going to add past plans to the training stress chart so it’s super clear to see how you’re progressing through plans (along with percent plan complete).

Easier to see “Delete Plan” button

Our previous delete plan button wasn’t very clear. We’ve now made it a bigger button so it’s easier to see how to delete a plan.

Color Tweaks

We also made some slight color tweaks to our site. They aren’t very noticeable but I think things look a lot better! GJ TrainerRoad Daniel!

That’s it for today!

MUCH love to the Calendar. I came late to TR, so I’ve never known a TR without the ability to load in external outdoor rides (I think I signed up when that was in beta). I imagine that was as huge as this, but THIS, for me, is huge. :star::star::star::star::star::star:

I hope this is the right place for a Feature Request. Is it possible to shift an entire plan or multiple plans back an arbitrary number of days? Maybe we can, and I’m just too blood-oxygen starved to see it because of all my perfectly hard and consistent TR work.

I had my year planned out through October 2019, but then some unexpected travel came up, and I struggled a bit with how to adjust my plans to account for it. I’ll be off bike enough that I don’t want to just skip the workouts and pick up the plan as if I wasn’t gone, but not so long that I need to worry about repeating anything. I’d love to have been able to just pick up a workout, and move it and all subsequent workouts back by about a week and a half. Then I’d go back and put a couple filler rides in the gap between trips, and call it good.

It wasn’t a huge deal in my case - I just deleted the plans, and manually moved the remaining rides in my current phase back, scheduled the filler workouts, and scheduled the following plans back out again. There weren’t that many rides left in my current phase, so it didn’t take long. I can see it being a significant time saver though, if a phase has just started, or you have a carefully custom-made schedule and then are hit with unexpected but relatively short time-off-bike. Unless it’s a stock plan, rebuilding all that could be painful.

Yes, you can shift your entire plan one week at a time. If you click on the three dot menu on the right side of a week there are options to move, copy, push and pull weeks.

Nate, so stoked so far about the calandar, and I know you guys are moving fast.

I’d love to see the ability to drag an entire training block by grabbing the block title above the first workout. When I push the week, it pushed all subsequent blocks as well, which I suppose makes sense, but was somewhat unexpected.

Also, it would be great to be able to select a workout variant from the dialog that comes up when you select the workout for that day on the calendar. Saves some back and forth and having to go through the “add to calendar” workflow.

Keep it up!


#5

Would love to see the ability to look at previously done work out and have ‘Add to Calendar’ right there!


#6

You can move an entire week right now, we don’t have a way to move all workouts in a day or just three in a week at once. You’d have to drag them one at a time.

Workout variants will show up in the workout drill in.


#7

Well have a copy option right there where you can the. Add it anywhere.


#8

There it is! Awesome.

Is there nothing TR cannot do?
