I am training for a triathlon and frequently estimate TSS for my runs, swims, and other non-bike workouts. For a given intensity, should I adjust my TSS based on my current fatigue level? Or should a workout’s TSS be independent of cumulative stress?
Scenario 1: Run workout at the start of a training plan
Scenario 2: Run workout at the end of a hard training week
Assuming this run is estimated to have a TSS of 30, and assuming I perform the run at the exact same intensity, should I adjust the estimated TSS under scenario 1 vs. scenario 2?
Hope my question makes sense. I ask this because the easy run I just did wasn’t as easy as I remembered it to be (felt like moderate intensity rather than recovery).
Appreciate everyone’s feedback on this. Thanks!
