    I have access to my clubs coaching account, which includes all the stuff you get for premium plus the ability to create programs and look at all other members workout data...

    I've not used trainer road or even ever looked at it to be honest, we did look at today's plan which looks good, but we've been using training peaks for so long it would be painful to rebuild all the sessions and plans we have in there.

    I was referring to that links suggestion, rather than yours...

    I'm trying to use training peaks, or TP...

    meh, that suggestion is stoopid, I want to create a ramp test that works for the people I coach in training peaks, not tell them they have to manually change their FTP settings to 200w so it works....

    runs off to raise ticket with training peaks

    was just trying to build this exact thing in training peaks but limited by % of FTP rather than being able to specify actual numbers, looks like this is similarly limited, how did you do it with 20w increments?

    Haven’t tried them myself but a couple of clubmates rate them...

    I really like it, mostly for workouts as it integrates nicely with training peaks, using the long races instead of long rides is pretty good too.

    not very welcoming, but better to be honest and take your money only for you to be left for dead in your first session, it can be really hard for small clubs, so we usually point complete newbies to our local neighbour run club (we're tri club) as by the time we've done a 2km warm-up to get from or meeting point to the park where we do our sessions, most newbies would be toast!

    good luck finding a bigger and better club!

    great stuff, personally prefer Brighton to London, although it is possible to feel a bit lonely on course, 3:10 this year and I felt I ran completely alone from mile 10 to mile 19 when a mate jumped on the course to keep me company for a couple of miles!

    a sub 3 is on my list for 2020, have ironman next year :/

    the local swim club have several lanes for their youth members when I swim, and some days I manage to keep up with them and feel really awesome, then realise they are doing kicking drills or single arm drills and die a bit inside.....

    some of them are genuinely good national medal winning swimmers but still....
