Just a little confused. I have been trying to build my base and have been trying to stay in zone 2 on my rides. I am 51 and have set a maff zone 2 heart rate of 129.
I did an outdoor ride with a buddy this past weekend (proper social distancing in effect) and managed to stay in HR zone 2 for most of the ride. This is from my 4iiii’s left side meter.
As you can see heart rate was pretty good and I was satisfied and then I looked at my power and it was all over the place. Should I be trying to stay in zone 2 power the whole time?
I am approaching a ramp test next week so all my indoor rides this week are zone 2. Here is from an indoor ride.
So I have been concentrating on heart rate but I am thinking I need to have both my heart rate and my power in zone 2 to be really working on zone 2 base? Is this correct? This is the first year I am training outdoors with a power meter.
Thanks for the guidance.
