XATA workout recommendations when tired

I’m confused about why XATA often recommends long workouts (like 3 hours) on days when my Training Status is tired. If I do what’s recommended, I end up staying yellow or red for days with no recovery until I actually take days off.

A 3-hour endurance ride where you stay at or below LTP is likely the best training you could possibly do when your status is yellow. The key is to avoid high intensity allowing those systems to recover bringing you back to blue.
