Thanks Mike, I really appreciate the time and effort.

Currently my plan has me running 4x a week, 3 of which I now use the HR as my guide and go by time and 1 day of speed which I now also go by the higher levels of HR. Hopefully I am on the right track.

They need to sticky this thread, wish I would of ran into it sooner!

You're welcome and I'm happy to help. Always.

In terms of speed make sure you have a current race time you are basing speed work off of. If you are then you may want to use the Daniels Run Formula charts - they work great. http://www.coacheseducation.com/endur/jack-daniels-nov-00.htm

Let me know if you have questions. Thanks

Now, if you did the test inside and are going to train inside those numbers are valuable. But if you train outside you'll need to do an outside test. No two ways about it. I like to see accurate numbers for indoors and outdoors.

For your IM ride, Z2 is where you would ride. Maybe some Z3 on some hills, but I would try to minimize that. An IM ride should be relatively easy, not hard. That way you can run to your potential. Good luck!




Thanks Mike,

Appreciate that

Good info, I'm going to do the test soon.

I do have a question, I live in the Ozarks and can't find flat ground to ride or run on for 20 minutes if i wanted to. Does it matter if my bike and run course has hills in it? I can get it mostly flat for the run with only one significant hill, but don't have anything near flat that I could ride on my bike for that long.

Thanks,

Stephan
