Yes it makes sense. If you do a workout of the same duration at the same HR with a higher threshold number in the system, you’re working at a lower percentage of that threshold. According the the TSS formula you’re inducing less fatigue.
Hi Uphill Athletes,
I’m moving into week 8 of the beginner marathon training plan and have a few questions about the workout builder in Training Peaks and Using TftUA zones. I’ve attached an image for your reference.
I’m wondering whether this tool is worth using for planning? If so, do you manually calculate the percentage difference from AnT and enter the percentages manually?
Finally, since I just calculated my AnT last week of 177, and I have updated if in Training peaks my TSS seems to be lower. Does this make sense (it was raised from a lower number but I can’t remember the number)?
I hope this makes sense. Thanks for your help.
