Hey Team -
Firstly, amazing product. I’ve been at it a week and loving the structure and the actual workouts. The flexibility works amazing for real life and my body is responding well to it. In saying that, i’ve trained 7 days, the load is significantly higher than other training structures and the fatigue reg-o-meter doesn’t seem to be impacting although some of the workouts have definitely put me in a hole.

25(ish) November, but thats placing me in prebuild, so Im in continuous.
Current Training/Riding is at 10.5-12 hours a week, which is already on the up. At moderate-1 its projecting 14.6 (from 10.5) and a TL of 117.1 (from 81.1). For a ‘moderate’ plan does that seem right?
With the work outs i’m not seeing any tiredness increase even though I’ve feeling the fatigue specifically legs than CNS. Is this just me being soft and should be handle more or are the calculations not right?
I dont want to blow myself up with too much fatigue, like doing 70% rather and 105% because the system said I was fresh and im out like a zombie for a week.
Hoping you can point me in the general direction so I can really get on this!
