I understand that a weekly rhythm may be comfortable for those tied to fixed work/weekend schedules, but even as I am still working, at my moderately advanced age I find that my preferred workout schedule is day in/day out. This means that I am alternating weeks with three and weeks with four workouts, and so a ‘week’ of even length (be it 8 or 10 days, for example) would give me much more consistent projections and recommendations.
Without a doubt others have a similar wish, depending on their own ideal recovery rates, and the huge advantage Xert has in the field of day-to-day training adaptations seems to be only an inch away from this next step in customization – it should only alter the time frame and nothing else in the rest of the engine.
Am I asking for too much? Surely the rigid plan structure on TrainerRoad has pushed me away from them, but even there on the forums I spotted hints that the platform may be allowing for custom ‘week lengths’ in the future, and so it could be a good marketing move for Xert to put it in before the rest of the competitors do.
