Yes - I know (well I thought I knew) what the CP and HR levels should be.  Yesterday I'd brought along my Garmin to track HR and thus my original question as after 15 minutes I'd barely gone into Z2 ... average HR for the session was just into Z2 and max was only 10 beats higher than the avg.

How are you determining what Z2 is?  Is it per Garmin's zones based on some age related method (e.g. 220-age) or is the Z2 based on your physiology per field LT testing?  Anyway, if you are using VP and did the CP tests don't sweat it. You can use the 20' test HR avg as something close to what your field LT test would be and calc the zones using the BT HR calculator.

Thanks Donto, and again - I know what my CP and HR zones are. 

My question relates to the cycling program and is it by design such that early on the power output is at an easy level such that HR is mostly in Z1 - Z2?
