Good Morning Everyone,
I am curious about how the exercise load is being calculated in running sessions.
I have noticed that the adherence factor of the session is related to the duration and not the load or pace of the session prescription. I know load is a function of time, and intensity including my threshold settings (5km TT etc).
I have noticed recently that recently my load per session seems to be higher than expected and am wondering if I need to complete another test week?
The bottom of my Z2 is 132BPM. I deliberately kept my session super chill just to see how the load came out. At only 6BPM above my Z2 base with the prescribed duration, I was almost 40% higher load than expected.
When I check my thresholds they don’t seem to be too far off, but could sure do with an update; with the snow and ice outside I don’t want to push a full TT for risk of slip and fall.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
