Associate a TSS to a workout

Associate a TSS to a workout

This post could be "cross-plugin", as the benefit would impact for example the Fit Plan plugin.
Ideally it would be great to calculate automatically a TSS from the steps of the workout, but I realize there are difficulties hard to overcome. So I have arranged a spreadsheet to calculate TSS (and duration and IF) for each workout I have (by the way, few dozens...). Now, if it would be possible to write that information inside the workout in a codified way, another plugin could use those information. Let's say in the main Note filed of the plugin you could write TSS=220, DUR=3:50:00, IF=0.76, another plugin (Fit Plan) could read those information and insert directly the values in the plan. Another way would be to have custom fields attached to the workout.

Some of this already exists but it's not as slick as what I think the developers have planned with the upcoming integration.

Create your workout and in the notes for the workout (not the notes for the individual parts) put TSS=xxx. Go ahead and plan a series of workouts over the next few weeks for example. Now go to Training Plan and you'll see your future workouts showing with correct ATL/CTL/TSB.

This feature will probably leave TrainingPlan and go to FitPlan along with the amount of time planned and the distance planned. In reality to plan ATL/CTL/TSB you only need TSS.
