    Hello All,

    I am a little late with information this week! After our Zoom call yesterday, I wanted to share a couple of tricks and articles about Training Peaks. This is basic information that is helpful to apply as you go. Carolyn and I will be doing an in-depth zoom meeting about all about Training Peaks, but we will do it later on in the session since Training Peaks requires 8-12 weeks of data for some of its features.

    We had a question about TSS (Training Stress Score). This is something you can be looking at and adjust daily. The first article talks about all the different TSS scores. We only look at and use hrTSS and TSS for mountain sports; I would highly recommend starting to change all of your TSS scores to hrTSS. You will gain more accurate data from Training Peaks algorithms and calculations later on if you have every workout in the same metric.

    This article talks about converting to hrTSS: https://help.trainingpeaks.com/hc/en-us/articles/360051604291-Toggle-between-TSS-and-HrTSS-on-the-TrainingPeaks-Mobile-App.

    The second thing I wanted to mention and we have talked about, is using Training Peaks to track your cycle and overall energy. Unfortnelty there is no specific feature to do this yet, but I encourage my athletes (and myself) to make notes throughout their cycle or even their life. Since you are already on the app daily checking training, it is easy to add additional notes that you can look back on. I have found the biggest change in understanding my body is keeping track of it better.

    I hope this helps, and let us know if you have further questions that we can go in more depth about in the future zoom.
