+1 ; Random for (a) entertainment or (b) illusion of sophistication or some secret sauce. Variation = Bad. Arbitrary variation = More bad. Best bet is to perform this and all workouts using simple repeats in manual ERG mode. That way, you can understand + add/extend/split intervals as needed to ensure proper stimulus or preserve workout quality when you are in trouble. Sadly, most Zwift plan workouts are impossible to translate into anything remotely coherent, thus these plans devolve into a one-size-fits-all mystery riddled with failed workouts because "it's okay because I can't complete them all either" and from which you learn nothing.

By contrast, most TrainerRoad workouts are at least coherent enough to translate into actual interval workouts.
