Manually add Training Load to activities for Fitness & Freshness graph

It would be very helpful to be able to add manual TSS estimates to rides. I live in a pretty brutal winter climate and don't risk bringing my crank-mounted power meter on some of the more snow-ridden, submerged, occasionally airborne training rides I do in the winter, so when I return from a 5 hour frostbitten epic I don't really have a good assessment of what the effect on my fatigue/fitness would be. It'd be handy to be able to punch in some kind of guess so I can better keep track of my fitness curves. Just a thought.

 

Thanks!

  • In fairness to Strava - before criticising think how it should be implemented.  I (and others) are managing to get around this issue by duplicating a ride similar to the one that we lost.
    They could just enable people to input a suffer score I guess but the best way of working that out is from a comparable ride (or portion of a ride by editing the start end points).  The downside is you have a "phantom" ride on the books the upside is that if the "phantom" ride is close to the ride you lost then all your other stats are restored too (distance, height gain, ride time etc.)

    I think the work around is almost the correct way to do it.

    I bigger sports science issue is that cross training (e.g. swimming or running) isn't possible to calculate or enter.

  • I'm sorry to report that this improvement request to add a manual value to the Fitness & Freshness graph is not currently planned. We appreciate your feedback, as it will help inform our decisions going forward.

  • Just adding my name to the list of users that want this feature. Strava's fitness/freshness is utterly useless without it which is a shame. I just want the option to key in a TSS score when I upload a ride with no power. Seems simple enough to me.

  • Yes me as well, just completed a 108 mile ride, and my heart rate monitor battery had run out, I knew from my mates power data that my tss would be about 300.  It should be easy enough to add this in, otherwise my fitness/freshness is not correct and defeats the object of having the premium function

  • Compared to any other Training Application in 2019, Strava strikes me as a plastic toy created by Fischer-Price. No shadow on Fischer-Price though. They make great toys. For kids.

  • Cancelled Strava Premium primarily due to not being able to properly track TSS. Switched to Training Peaks which does allow manual entry of TSS.

  • Another cancel here!

  • I had an issue with my garmin not coming on but recorded a pretty tough TTT training session using the powertaps app on my phone but my F&F calcs don't have it within their calculations. I'll be moving to Training Peaks if this is not resolved by the time my annual subscription is due. Really disappointing, especially given this was originally flagged as being an issue to premium users in 2013!!

  • Did this finally get fixed?

    Can anyone verify?  I gave up my premium due to this feature not being available a loooong time ago:

    "
    Perceived Exertion is a new tool that lets you rate how intense your efforts feel. Use it when editing or saving an activity that you don’t have heart rate or power data for so your Fitness chart still includes all your workouts.
    "

  • Holy crap. They actually fixed it. It only took ~6 years.

  • Awesome!

    I'm hoping that "next up" on this would be to look at rides that are done frequently (by the same person) and compare times to generate a difficulty guesstimate.

    ie:  I commute on one of about 5 different routes (variety is the spice of life!) ...  some days I'm laid back, some days I ride hard.    Occasionally I wear a HRM.

    It should be pretty simple for the computer to look at a given 3 mile stretch and say "today he rode it in 12 minutes, last week he rode it in 15 minutes....  must be that he worked harder today"

    It's imperfect, sure, but if there are 10 rides w/ HRM data, and another 10 without, Strava could peg the 10 to the 10 based on approximate velocity, no? 

     

    One can dream!

     

    meantime:  I'm pleased to see the perceived exertion-ometer.  Thank you.

  • Fitness and Freshness is now worse than useless. If I tick use Perceived Exertion instead of heart rate it makes NO differerence to the Training Impulse for that ride (still 0, because my power meter battery was dead even though I cycled 100k with a heart monitor) BUT it changes the Training Impulse from the day before from 185 to 500+ depending on how hard I perceived today's ride to be!) It is beyond belief that we pay for this and still can't manually add a calculated TSS when power meter data is missing. And surely, if basing the chart on Power and Relative Effort, the calculations for a ride could be be based on heart rate only if power is missing or vice versa. Strava is great in many ways but this Fitness/Freshness is crap and the new features do not work in any way related to how we  are told they do.
