    I understand that it is possible to switch between intensity levels.
    What I wonder about is the following: let’s say I invest in a running PM – could I switch from bike power – run pace to a bike power / run power plan?
    Would it be possible to do that even if the plan was already started? I would assume that pace/power should line up (after doing a threshold test)?

    Winora, absolutely. Our Level Guarantee covers both switching level or intensity types, even if you have already started the plan. Just make that request at https://www.8020endurance.com/contact/


    Thanks David!
    If I get a power meter for running, would you recommend to keep using the pace based plan for a few weeks until the next threshold test and switch then?
    Also to have some more data?

    Winora, yes. However, consider these two other options to dial in your run FTP even sooner:

    1. Our new Talk Test can be done during any workout, on any day. See the Intensity Guides document in our Resources area. We’re still fine-tuning the protocol, but it’s an alternative to identify run FTP now.

    2. During your next Zone 3 interval session, if you are running at the top of Zone 3 at average 6:30 per mile for the 5-minute interval, and your average run power for that same 5-minute interval is 320 watts, then your run FTP is going to be pretty close to 320 watts.



    Thanks David
