    Sounds good, thank you! I will stick with rTSS and ignore the hrTSS calc in TP going forward.

    Coach D,

    I understand the cardiac lag part and I would never compare my hrTSS and my rTSS for an anaerobic or interval workout for exactly that reason. But I would expect my hRTSS and rTSS/bTSS be somewhat comparable during steady state efforts. But I consistently find my hrTSS to be lower than my rTSS. fpr example during my last RF12 last Saturday, I tried to run at upper Z2 so my rTSS ended up being 119 (compared to 109 planned), yet my hrTSS for the same workout was only 79. So I thought to myself “great looks like you’re outperforming your zones so next test should be a great improvement” yet during my 20-min test yesterday I barely added .1 miles to my distance (RTHP from 6:47 to 6:42, while LTHR stayed at 183 based on your updated 15-min peak protocol). I just want to make sure I stay in the right training zone and to make sure I don’t over or undertrain. Is there even a risk to undertrain during long runs/rides? Should I focus more on my hr zones or my pace zones during those long steady state efforts? Thanks!

    8020 group rides on Zwift will make doing workouts like the CFo series on the weekends much more enjoyable, David… Let’s get us set up and going!

    What about the flip side to this? I just finished my second block of the advanced IM plan, and I have my HR oftentimes staying in mid to upper Z1, even though my pace/power is in high Z2. I have also noticed even though I can feel my run and bike endurance fitness increase, I make only very small improvements in my 20 min FTP/LTRP tests. My guess is because IM training is very different than focused 5k run or bike TT training, but I just don’t want to be missing my key intensity levels. i.e., my hrTSS vs. my bikeTSS or rTSS in Trainingpeaks are sometimes 20+ points different, with hrTSS always lower. Any adivce?

    Thanks, coach! Another question on zone 2 during different types of workouts. During my CAn6 workout yesterday, I tried to keep my power output during the 80 min Z2 work in the end the same as during the CF9 workout a few days prior, but my HR was probably 10 bpm higher during the CAn Z2 than during the CF9 Z2. What’s more important here? To keep the power output similar and allow HR to drift higher, because I’m doing it on more tired legs after those anaerobic intervals, or keep HR comparable to the CF9 work and allow power to drop to low Z2/high Z1? this will be helpful for the rest of my plan no doubt. Thanks!

    I think I’m able to answer my own question by now (but would like confirmation if possible). Looks like the “rest” weeks have RT or CT workouts in them. So I guess I should do the FTP test during those workouts to reestablish my zones? Thanks
