The most likely answer is yes.  The system looks for multiple days of consistent deviation against your target Training Load. When such a pattern is identified, it attempts to adjust all future loads up or down accordingly. 

Training Load, though, is not the only determinant of how much your plan changes.  Settings around days and hours available to train per week, and how close a rider is to their A goal also factor into how much adjustment can be made, as does an updated FTP number. So, even if the system wants to adjust a week’s load, it can only make such adjustments if the rider has enough load headroom for that week, e.g., hours available.

One other nuance is that the system will not schedule an athlete to their max hours per week in early training weeks because it will be increasing the load closer to the goal date.  

Finally, remember that it is possible to overtrain and VeloPro systematically builds in rest for athletes to avoid overtraining. When you feel your best is when it's time to rest.  Overtraining can lead to temporary fatigue and a downturn in your capacity to perform at your best at one end of the scale and to burnout and deep long-lasting fatigue at the other end of the scale.

Lots of time spent riding at or slightly below threshold power are a common culprits so beware of this trap.  Optimal training will help you feel good, have energy to put out harder efforts when necessary, and recover more easily from those efforts.

If you still think that something is amiss with the system then below is a protocol to follow to see if your plan is adapting:

1. First note the number of hours you've input to VeloPro to train weekly

2. Note the date(s) of your A goals and what the Event Type is

3. Note your FTP numbers as you go

4. Take screenshots of your month-long plan each time you ride over a period of 2-3 weeks

5. Compare the screenshots to see if/how the plan has adapted

If it's still not clear to you that the plan is adapting as you think it should, send us all of the above data that you've collected so that we can investigate. 

Here's a few more tips:

1. Having more availability to train will help the system work better for you.

2. There is a difference between your actual FTP and what the system thinks your FTP is.  If your actual FTP is higher than what the system thinks it is then the system will schedule you with lower load workouts and expect them to take longer, which means you would not be able to accumulate much load compared to what you've done in the past.

3. The system only adjusts FTP when you perform an FTP check or change your default FTP. So if you're not doing either of these, your predicted FTP will not align with your current capacity.
