I have the view that someone more knowledgeable than me has created the plan and therefore I will try my hardest to follow it and not consider dropping intensity etc unless I absolutely have to. If that is not too easy then that is a good thing in my mind.
No doubt. I feel that way 100%. But he also recommends in some workouts (e.g., Bluebell) to assess how we feel and ramp up intensity if certain intervals/sets are too easy. And I have noticed that Vo2Max intervals feel easy to me. A feature where I can automatically set Vo2Max higher than 120% is helpful.
Not sure if 120% vs. 125% matters, but if it doesn’t then why does Coach Chad recommend, through the workout text, increasing intensity if the intervals feel easy? It must account for something, right? I am genuinely curious to know.
We can certainly adjust intensities on the fly but as @JulianM said, why not strive for improvement? We’re all for TR’s improvement because we love their platform.
