Are my cycles / non-running activities considered when building my running plan?

Category: FAQs

Not presently (please read on…).

Whilst TrainAsONE receives and stores non-running activities (performing ‘cursory’ analysis mainly for display purposes) it only considers your runs and their effects whilst building your training plan.

This is because the science and evidence on how to perform mulit-modality training is very sparse (to non existent). And it has been our aim since the inception of TrainAsONE to forgo the standard conventional wisdom and golden rules of training and instead develop an AI / ML (artificial intelligence and machine learning) toolset against running. Once ‘good enough’ we would then take that learning and extend to multi-modality training.

With the technology that underpins our Fit Scores and our latest training algorithm (Artemis), we are almost at that point. Our next step is to further utilise the knowledge of this new technology within run plan generation. It will then be a relatively simple (yet still a great amount of work) to incorporate non-running activities into plan generation. And subsequently we will then being development of scheduling non-running workouts.
