    Thanks to Pedro I have just upgraded from Base to the Intermediate plan. I recovered from long flu and start doing a lot of mountaineering on our highest mountain with e.g. 10 hours uphill in my Z2. So the Base level did not provide enough load to further improve my Fitness (CTL). Now in my new plan, I read a 1-hour Z3 workout at maximum exertion with a heavy backpack. And it suggests that this is only 120 TSS! In my experience, this should result in much higher hrTSS. Is the metrics of the plan done in hrTSS? I am asking this question because something went wrong a few days ago in TP and instead of calculating hrTSS it calculated rTSS, so after a Z2 45 min exercise I got an rTSS of only 3! This opened my eyes that something is wrong and my 11:40 hours climb should be recalculated. Thanks to Pedro he cleared the problem which I still do not know how appeared?

    All the workouts should be put as Hrtss , runtss is related to pace , TSS is related to power ,we are working with heart rate , so it should be Hrtss so that every workout corresponds to your efforts .

    Thank you for this post — I have been using Training Peaks for years and had always relied on hrTSS, but for some reason my hike/jog workouts are defaulting to rTSS for this program. They have been very low, way below the planned numbers. I’ve gone back and manually changed them to hrTSS, and now the values seem much more accurate.

    Thanks again for pointing this out!

    I tried to figure out in the TP Settings a possibility to make it mandatory to calculate hrTSS but could not find such an option. If somebody knows how to do it, please help.

    Hi Geoge,

    For changing the type of tss you have to enter on your workout and change it, it only possible on the computer. After you change the first on, Tp is going to ask you if you want to change for Hrtss for definition, after you press yes , all workouts from that point on will be in Hrtss

    Cheers

    Hi Pedro,

    TP did not ask me to use hrTSS as the default after I changed several metrics. Also, I asked in the group meeting and they explained but I did not get it – how can I zoom the HR scale, so it is not from 0 to e.g. 140 but e.g. fro 120 to 140? Thanks.

    Hi George ,

    Tp only changes forwards , he doesn’t corrects to hrtss.
    For example , if you change today to hrtss he will ask if you want to define all as hrtss , you need to say yes , and from now onwards all workouts will be on hrtss.
    Zoom the heart rate scale ? Where? Why ?

    Cheers,
