Has anyone else read this blog post from Brett Sutton?
I’d be interested in an discussion about his assumption.
I tend to agree with him, since the TR Swim and Run Workouts are only based on RPE and this works pretty fine for me.
Of course his arguments are not really applicable on TR in general. RPE based only structured training on the Trainer would be horrible.
But nevertheless needs the race winning fitness some experience on the road, because there are too many variables like elevation, the day’s form, temperature/humidity, etc. that make it hard to pace a race only by the powermeter.
I remember Coach Chad saying educated (by data) RPE is the most valuable data in racing.
