I’ve got a question about TSS
I’ve just started using TR and have done my first ramp test which has given me my FTP but its much lower than my outdoor FTP, I’m not quite used to the trainer yet! Alongside TR I’m also using Training Peaks to track both my indoor and outdoor workouts and therefore using it for fatigue, form and fitness calculations which are calculated using TSS. As my FTP is lower indoors when my workouts are transferred to TP they show up with a lower TSS than TR had predicted for the workout.
So my question is this, can I change the TSS in Training Peaks to what TR had predicted to ensure that the fatigue, form and fitness numbers are accurate? Does this effectively simulate doing the workout outside with my outdoor FTP? If TSS calculation uses FTP, NP and IF then maybe it can just be translated across from indoor to outdoor FTP’s or vice versa for that matter.
