intervals.icu is a good free alternative to TP

I've done that bit, and imported them into the devices, but I can't create a training programme unless they are in Garmin Connect.

So if you have the workouts files converted to FIT, instead of adding them directly to the Garmin device, could you import them into Garmin Connect, then create a new training plan in the GC calendar using the workouts, adding day by day?

Garmin Connect won't import a FIT file into workouts, only courses, it will import a training plan from TrainingPeaks but that's an expensive sub and I'll get minimal value from it.

I guess then the cost of avoiding that sub is manually copying/recreating the workout steps provided by Zwift and populating the calendar. Is the reason you want to transfer to Garmin to be able to do them outside? Otherwise I think I'd just do the plan indoors directly in Zwift. 

I've only ever used a Garmin Connect training plan once, for a knee injury recovery, and I simply added in some power & time interval steps that the physio gave me.
