Hi Everyone Got two random questions I’m curious about if you have thoughts:
Any of you who do running and cycling have a sense of what race distance the cycling FTP/20 minute might be equivalent to? I know that the answer might be ‘however hard you can run for 20 minutes’, in which case I might say 2 mile to 5k+ depending on one’s capacity. Mainly I’m trying to remember how different races felt when I used to race a loooooong time ago, so I can get a better sense of how workouts will feel. Basically my perceived effort meter needs a little refinement I think.
For base training, I heard a recommendation (good youtuber cyclist) recently to aim to stay in zone 2 for long rides. I’m not doing base training yet, but going to plan for it, and also I’m just curious about longer rides in general. Now I don’t know if this person means the traditional heart rate zone 2 or based off of LTHR like SF.
Thanks for any thoughts!
