Going back and looking at a full year of data it is becoming clear to me that I should be doing Vo2Max workouts at a higher percentage than TR’s builtin recommendation. I would love to have a feature that would let us tweak up or down that base 120% that is used to calculate the intervals but until that day comes I am okay just changing the percentage.
I am pretty sure one of the regulars once posted a quick cheatsheet thing for calculating what percent you should change a workout intensity to get to a certain % for vo2max like intervals. I am trying to search for it but I cant quite find the right phrase. I think it was part of one of the thread-zillas like more sweet spot or the ISM training one or something making it harder to just dig up. Anyone remember what the hell i am on about?
I hate to say it but it’s very easy to create your own sessions in TrainingPeaks. Everything ends up there anyway.
I am doing the mid-volume base but some of the workouts just down get me into the zones I am looking for. And not just the VO2 and Threshold, Endurance sessions end up in Zone 1.
Why is that?
