Tempo work - max heart rate 190bpm

I would have thought your SS HR should be about 155bpm. With a max HR of around 185bpm i think 170bpm is certainly too high and you are doing threshold work and not SS.

But then is the question of how developed is an aerobic engine. For example during longer SS (15+) and threshold intervals my HR in lines with zones but then during later intervals rises, simply because I am untrained. Then in my personal opinion there is a problem with measurment of people that start training and people that are trained and more delveloped. My rationale is that as long as it is not harming any recovery then I do not care about HR crossing zones. But observing HR is my measurment of progress and fitness.
