Understanding the Readiness to Train Graph

Your Load Monitoring Graph will be another tool you can use to ensure you train safe, and stay healthy

Your Readiness Score will give you a summary of your current load monitoring status and if your risk of injury is increasing or not. 

In this tool, you will see the river graph below. This is only available on a tablet or through a browser on a Laptop/Desktop.


How to Read this Graph

Every bar represents your training load for that day (including multiple workouts on the same day). A red bar is a day where you overtrained. A yellow bar is a day where you undertrained. A green bar is a day where you trained in the "Safe Zone."

The blue blob (the "river" of the river graph) shows you the range of your Safe Zone. Any workouts that end with a Readiness score in that blue section will be considered Safe.

You can adjust the time period you are viewing in the top right of the graph.

How to use the graph

The bars tell you about your past performance and how safely you have been training, while the river section gives you advice on what directions you can take your workouts in the future.

This area represents the target training load range for each athlete. Bear in mind, each individual's river plot will differ in size and widen or broaden periodically, depending on their RPE entries and workout distances. When your overall load is larger, the river will be wider as the variance between your Safe Zone's top and bottom will also be larger.

This graph should be used in conjunction with the Recommendations the app gives you to help shape your training plan over the next days and weeks.
