    I’m a few weeks into the 5k level 0 and so far everything has worked well. Today I was not able to load the workout on my Garmin 945. I should have completed the RDI1 (descending intervals), but it was not on my watch. I ended up running last week’s interval session again.

    I see the workout on my Garmin Connect calendar, and I tried syncing with my phone and with my computer. I also tried adding RDI1 to may calendar again, and I deleted a few old workouts to see if that was an issue.

    I know I can manually copy the *.fit files over to the watch, but are there any tricks I can try when I’m not near my computer?

    Thanks! Jim

    Why does it have to be loaded into the watch, can’t you just do the workout?

    For example, if you run by power, and the workout says 5 minutes zone one, 10 minutes zone 2, 10 minutes zone x, 5 minutes zone 2

    Could you just run in your zones… Just memorize the workout, or write it on your hand? That’s what I’ve done for years before a Garmin watch… Heck, if you don’t even have a smart watch, you can always just run by your perceived effort

    The only recommendation I have would be to also pose this question in the Garmin Forums. This honestly sounds like a tech support issue within Garmin itself. They may have even better ideas than we would. It does sound like a small glitch if it is only the one workout.

    Good point, I will try Garmin. I was able to copy it over manually so it’s not a big deal. I’ll just get in the habit of checking the workout before I leave the house.

    13x,

    Try these steps from our document https://www.8020endurance.com/understanding-trainingpeaks-workout-plan/ This forces a re-sync between all points.

    – Use the Shift feature in the TrainingPeaks calendar (click on the triple horizontal lines found by hovering over a given day or week in the calendar and choose Shift) and shift your plan from today forward by one week. Wait for that change to reflect in the 3rd party calendar, then shift the workouts back to their original dates in TrainingPeaks.

    – Cut a given workout(s) off of the calendar, wait for that change to reflect in the 3rd party calendar, then paste the workouts back to their original dates in TrainingPeaks.

    – Unapply the entire plan in TrainingPeaks, wait for that change to reflect in the 3rd party calendar, then reapply the entire plan.

    These actions lead TrainingPeaks to consider the affected workouts to be “new” workouts and force a re-sync to the 3rd party, which then sends your updated zones to your device.

    Thanks, I will give that a try.
