    to add to this…

    i typically run pace. i run with a stryd pod for pace. i have yet to fully adopt the idea of power in my running but i will say this regarding HR versus pace.

    i live in texas, south east texas. where i live in the summers its 100 degrees and 100% humidity. its friggen hot. on my watch i have my HR and pace up all the time when im running outside.

    i run the prescribed pace all the time UNLESS i FEEL my hr creeping up and interfering with my run. i typically run the same roads / routes so i know what i feel where i feel them (if that makes sense). in the heat i will run WELL on the high side of my zone, but ill run it till i feel its actually impeding my run, then ill back it off. its the only way ive felt that ive been able to actually really been able to balance the HR versus pace balance.

    my pace will sometimes dictate something but my HR is in the 150s (with a max hr of mid 170s) and ill truck along till i start feeling the ill effects. its def a balance but one you have to find for yourself.

    thanks for the reply matt! when i say “bulking”, i guess i am using the wrong term as that does apply more towards weightlifting and getting “swole”.

    what i should say is having enough calories in the day to meet your needs and still gain muscle versus taking the opportunity to be a touch cal deficient to cut a little fat.

    to add to the conversation, i ran into this exact “issue” a while back. on a structured workout the nice handy screen that tells you your zone pace does in fact display the average pace for that interval, NOT the instant pace.

    i did some digging and there is a thread on garmin’s message board pages and pages long with people complaining about it. its just how they designed that screen and its apparently an older complaint that hasnt been addressed by garmin.

    i dont even use that page anymore as an average pace doesnt tell me crap as i start falling off at the end of an interval because i went out too hard at the start.

    awesome, glad you guys are looking at it! i know it would be a big undertaking because you would essentially have to create 3 more plans for each level of each plan you already have.

    that said, thanks for the guideline of 25% more volume… that takes some guesswork out of it!

    thanks a lot for that response David. i didnt expect to have a finite response, as i figured that zone 2 was a “mix” so to say of easy and a easy / moderate, depending on the situation. just like you said!
