Longer or shorter versions of a workout can be found through the "Workout Variants" feature.
Many TrainerRoad workouts have variants that will change the workout's duration, IF, and TSS. You can utilize these workouts to achieve a similar training effect if you're too time-crunched to complete the original workout. Or, if you're looking for some extra TSS that day, a longer variant will give you just that!
A workout's variant will display as separate workouts with the same name, except with a "+" or "-" after the name.
Example: The workout "Baxter" has four variants. The variant "Baxter +2" bumps up the duration from 1.5 hrs to 2 hrs, the TSS from 67 to 88, and drops the IF from .67 to .66.
