Is there a feature that we should have in The Sufferfest app? This is the place to let us know!

Hi Cody,

How about iCalendar resource:

I’ve already posted this in ask the product manager thread however this seems to be a better place, I started here with the curiosity to see if I could link my Sufferfest Training plan with Training Peaks to get the posibility to see my workouts as part of my normal calendar… But it seems that it’s no longer possible (Perhaps custom plans?).

But my main interest here, is to be able to subscribe to my Sufferfest calendar from my phone or my computer, to see what’s the schedule for a particular day, and avoid either shifting trainings around, or having to shift appointments over trainings because of time management issues…

So a ICalendar, WebCal, CalDav resource here would improve that situation a lot!, even more if via a special url, I get to edit these appointments, like I do with for instance, my personal calendar server, that uses radicale, that exposes a resource, which I subscribe to from my phone and voila!

So as a story:

As a Sufferlandrian I would like The Sufferfest App to provide me with a calendar link that I can Subscribe to, so that I can better fit my training sessions on a given day taking into account other appointments in my own calendar.

One concrete feature request and one to ponder:

  1. Choice. I’ve covered this in previous posts, but the idea is to offer some choice in workout selection based on the desired training outcome. This relates to plans, primarily. So ideally build up alternatives to choose from for a given session.
    For example, a day for high-torque muscular endurance would have Power Station scheduled with a “Feeling good?” option of G.O.A.T or a “Feeling Bad?” option of GCN Strength Endurance.
    This will also address the common issue of new users that are confused by the “reduced intensity” workouts: they can choose a NoVid to do their endurance ride, or explicity choose The Hunted at 70%, eliminating the “why isn’t this hard?” question.

  2. 5DP. Yes. Cadence is the 5th Element.
    Remember this?

    Imagine personalized cadence targets! These can be derived from an athlete’s historic data (perhaps) and then tailor-made to pinpoint the cadence zones for best performance considering the force requirements and ability to sustain.

Hey and good morning from the UK. @Cody.Moore @codyjmoore11 (there’s two of you !) - would it be appropriate to expose the backlog items already out there (so one’s that aren’t top secret), they’re ones we’ve already put in the Facebook pages in the past) to save post duplication, and then add to that list as we go as a ‘pinned’ post, so that its easy for people to see what is already ‘logged’? Or is that a commercial issue?

Ability to add an activity. E.g., I do daily Suf Yoga, but I plan a week’s worth at a time based on what rides I’m doing, whether it’s a SUF strength day, and other factors. I’ve been at the daily Suf yoga for 2.5+ years now. So the sequences I decide on do not match well with any of the yoga sequences that any of the training plans provide, so I prefer to sequence my own yoga. Currently I write my plan out on a sheet of paper for the week, but this is cumbersome. I would love to be able to add activities to my SUF calendar. It could either be activities that link to real Suf activities (e.g., be able to add Improving Posture 1 to Wednesday July 8. I would also love to be able to add activities to the calendar that I write the title of myself (e.g., be able to add “Club Ride” to Monday July 6). This way I could get my SUF calendar to be the only place I have to look to see the flow of my overall plan. Note that I always have a SUF TP loaded, so this would be me adding activities to days that may already be populated with TP activities.

Yes, I agree. I would really like these features. Today, for example, I did a 2 hour gravel ride - would have been nice to have it in my plan.

Please start a new topic for your requests so that others can find them and vote on them if they want to. Putting them in this thread doesn’t allow for that.
