The one thing that I still find frustrating with a dumb trainer is that I routinely “fail” short intervals (5 seconds, for example). For example, I recently did Ebbets and “failed” the sprints during the last interval. It turns out though, if I just move the interval by one second, I didn’t fail them.
With interval search, I can now just search within the workout (let’s say by the minimum power for the lowest sprint interval and 5 seconds duration) and I get a list of all the 5 second-sprints. Then I can compare to the intervals.
What would be super cool would be if TR could do that work automatically by applying a certain fuzziness to the intervals. So if in the workout summary it lists Sprint 12 as 350/375 or whatever, it could just look 1-2 seconds to the right and see if that changes the power upwards. Does that make sense?
