Yes, the TSS is based off of your speed at your Lactate Threshold/Anaerobic Threshold. A 100 TSS score is equivalent to going an hour at AnT, so you can base your workouts off of an estimation of that. An hour at aerobic threshold I have found to be about 50 tss. While it’s not necessary, if you’re uninjured I would still recommend doing an AnT test so you can set more accurate zones in TP and use their metrics.
My TrainingPeaks TSS appears to be calculated off of my Lactate Threshold which is I think my AnT threshold??
However I am doing the 24 week mountaineering training plan and it does not have me do the AnT threshold test so I swagged a number for TrainingPeaks
Since I don’t have an AnT threshold, is my TSS basically meaningless even using the fudge factors as recommended?
Is there a way to Swag that threshold if I was unmotivated to do the treadmill test?
