I’m trying real hard to make outdoor workouts pretty near the recommended XSS for the day. I use trainerday to import the workout then export to trainingpeaks. That can then sync to my Wahoo Bolt and I can do a workout that is pretty close to the indoor trainer. I ride on a flat trail system and can hold the watts generally within 5-10 ± recommended and the overall XSS for the workout is usually pretty close to the recommended.
The issue comes up that on my planner I almost always get a difficult or hard workout and marked tired for the next 4 or 5 days. Even if I’m doing endurance workouts, that are supposed to put you back to the fresh status so you can do intervals again, they get marked hard as well. I’ve tried upping the freshness slider on the goals tab and that can help mitigate, but it seems like I shouldn’t really have to change that.
