rTSS v hrTSS in Training peaks

  • Creator

    Training peaks automatically assigns me a rTSS value for workouts recorded as “runs” on my Suunto watch, I am assuming we would rather use the hrTSS. is there a way to change that default to hrTSS or do I need to change it after I upload every workout?

    One way to do this:
    1) go to account settings
    2) go to layout/QuickViews
    3) choose the workout type from the dropdown (e.g. run, swim, bike…)
    4) remove pace from the selection of metric “In Use – Planned/Completed”

    This should mean all the workouts of that type default to hrTSS and not rTSS.

    If you do want rTSS ordinarily, just manually change to hrTSS.

    And yes I generally recommend using hrTSS for everything. We will touch on this a bit in the next zoom.

    NB: if you do choose to remove ‘pace’ from a workout type then TP will not produce a meaningful Pa:HR value. That’s what TP uses to estimate “aerobic decoupling”, which is their term for an HR drift test.
