Do you feel like your running pace and HR threshold values are set properly? It sounds to me like maybe your running threshold pace values are set too low—that’s a very high rTSS for a one hour walk that can’t have covered much distance.
As I live in Nordic countries and its winter now, I would prefer going for XC skiing rather than running. I have been using TraningPeaks and I recently purchased a mountaineering training plan. However I have a question about TSS values as those seem to be way off.
I was on a recovery walk for one hour with only 5 mins in Zone 1 and rest below. Next I went for XC skiing for 45 mins and 35 mins in Zone 2 and rest either on Zone 3 or Zone 1. The interesting part is that TSS evaluation in Training Peaks was roughly the same for both. The rTSS for the walk was 37 and hrTSS for the skiing was exactly the same. I felt way more tired after the ski exercise. Does this mean that I should somehow adjust the TSS after ski exercises or record that as running in order to get the rTSS for that activity as well?
