I’m trying to use fit files posted here https://www.8020endurance.com/8020-workout-library/ but without luck. I’ve tried Garmin, golden cheetah, trainerday and i get back error or file does not contain workouts or the workout is less than a minute long.
Any clues on how to use those files?December 7, 2020 at 3:45 pm #9499David WardenKeymaster
Thanks for using our workouts. I’ve included a section that addresses this from the Q&A section on the workout library page:
Q: Can I upload these workouts into Garmin Connect, Zwift, Final Surge or TrainingPeaks?
A: First, let’s distinguish between a planned workout and a completed activity. The workouts on the 80/20 Workout Library are planned workouts intended to load directly into your compatible device. Once you perform the planned workout, it becomes a completed activity. As planned workouts, these 80/20 Workout Library raw .FIT files can be imported directly into your compatible device to walk you through the workout. Regrettably, these raw .FIT planned workouts cannot be uploaded directly into Garmin Connect, Zwift, Final Surge nor TrainingPeaks for future planning purposes. This is a limitation of those platforms. You can, however, upload your completed activity into these platforms like any other activity that you complete.
Planned bike and run workouts can be synced from TrainingPeaks into Garmin Connect and Zwift (bike only) as well as automatically to your device if a) the workouts are in the TrainingPeaks Structured Workout format and b) using Garmin Connect AutoSync integration. The entire 80/20 Workout Library is made available to you in TrainingPeaks’ Structured Workout format with an 80/20 Subscription, where you can add the 80/20 Structured Workouts directly to your TrainingPeaks calendar as planned activities and sync them to Garmin Connect or Zwift (bike only). Additionally, our individual 80/20 electronic plans include workouts in the Structured Workout format and the ability to automatically sync your daily planned workouts to both your device and Garmin Connect and Zwift (bike only). TrainingPeaks is not able to automatically sync or export swim workouts, but you can still manually import these swim workouts to your device.

David tnx for the explanation which opens another question.
Is it possible that someone shares the workout library on TP as right now we would have to manually create each of those required workouts that are in the book? This takes quite a bit of time and TP offers the ability to share the workout library via email.December 7, 2020 at 4:16 pm #9503David WardenKeymaster
That ability is included with an 80/20 subscription. We’ll share the workout libraries and you’ll have access to the 80/20 workouts directly within TrainingPeaks, in all formats (Pace, Power and HR) and can drag and drop any workout in any format right to your calendar.
You’re right, it took a significant amount of time to manually create the hundreds of FIT files and thousands of workouts directly in TrainingPeaks. Our compromise is that we provide the FIT files for free, but the structured workouts within TP at a cost. If this seems overtly commercial… it is! 80/20 Subscriptions are our business’s bread and butter and primary revenue, mostly due to the popularity of the workout library.
Additionally, we are (drum roll…) days away from releasing 442 new run workouts to the subscription library bringing the total workouts to 2,336 to add even more value to the subscription.
