    I noticed that 30 mins TP test is not recommended anymore by the intensity testing guide. Is there a specific reason for why it is replaced with 20 mins test?

    It’s not so much that the 30 min test isn’t recommended – its just that the 20 min test is easier to do for most athletes and yields an almost similar outcome.

    Got it. Well, I liked the version saying that the full protocol is 30 mins, but you can do 20 mins as it is easier and yields to a very close result. Just the Threshold Pace option for the full protocol still exists in the calc and now it is unclear from the guide what is it for.
