Hi everyone I recently did the Half Monty since doing the FF for the first time in June. My LTHR increased significantly (176), which is great, but I noticed in a workout today that it said my zone 5 is 177-211, so I’m wondering if my zones are messed up because my max hr is 188 (pretty confident about this based on Polar HR, Garmin, and Whoop, higher for my age, but definitely not 211 lol). But I know during the HM that my HR strap glitched a second or two into the 200s, so wonder if that caused it. My questions:
- Can max hr be adjusted?
- Does the 211 impact or change my zones or workouts, or is that irrelevant, just my LTHR?
- Did that glitch and the 211 mistakenly calculate my LTHR too high?
My previous LTHR was 156, I definitely know that I feel good up to 167, I can maintain that at least for 20 minutes (haven’t tested longer than that, but did 2 rounds of that in a mtb ride this weekend in a longer ride). So not sure, I guess my LTHR could be 176, but was just worried when I saw 211 on my screen today
