    This is fascinating. I have a long (35 year) relationship with pace, a more recent relationship with HR (thanks to the 80/20 book). As a result of being old and set in my ways, I have a healthy distrust of a foot based power meter (I do have power pedals on my bike, so I’m not completely out of touch). This is a great read. Thanks for posting and for the replies.

    I see now that CV is “equal to the low end of zone 4”. Thanks!

    Thanks, Martin. When I hear FTP I think Functional Threshold Power. I don’t use power for running, so I’m not sure what my FTP is for running. What would CV be in relation to my LTHR (175)? Or is FTP “functional threshold pace”?

    If there are any links to resources I’m not seeing, please feel free to share. Thanks!

    I’ll be following this. I run and ride my bike. Just starting to adjust to the 80/20 plans. Will be experimenting with adding in bike rides. Some are commutes, some are longer rides. Best of luck working in the running and hockey.

    Awesome, Martin. Where are you from and what are you training for?

    Thank you! Appreciate the clarification. Looking forward to getting more consistent (and faster, hopefully) using this intuitive system.

    Sorry, one more question. In the book it says to determine your LTHR use the average HR from the last ten minutes of a 30 minute time trial. This, for me would be 185. However, on the website it says Your LTHR is 95% of your average heart rate in beats per minute (BPM). So, for example, if your average HR in the 20-minute time trial is 170 BPM, your LTHR is (170 x 0.95 =) 162 BPM.”

    Should I use 185 as the book says? Or should I use 175 (185*0.95)?

    This is actually my most pressing question. Thanks a bunch!
