Exactly. Like I said, I appreciate the effort that goes into TD and the philosophy, but it needs to be sustainable.
And yes, I am privileged, so even while I say I can understand where some people come from, or the lengths they have to go to, to be able to buy something, I probably don’t.
I pretty much (can) buy what I want, as long as my wife approves it , but I don’t want to waste my money on Sufferfest, Zwift, Rouvy, TR, TP (both of them: TrainingPeaks and Today’s Plan) or not even on Xert anymore; all of them are great and all, but at the end of the day, you can do without them.
I’ve been around for a while and have seen and used a lot, if not all, of these platforms. It’s a shame TD, intervals.icu and BigRingVR doesn’t seem to be happening, at least not from BigRingVR’s side of things. Or so it seems at this point.
Then again, a combo like that would definitely be more expensive than $10/month, so also not an option for many. A modular / tier approach could address that though.
