      I did the RPE today and I can not find any of the information I need to calculate my HR or power zones. Do I need to have Training Peaks premium in order to find this? It only gives my information for the entire workout, it’s not broken down for me to figure it out for the 20 minute test.

      Thank you,
      Tammy

      Hi Tammy,

      RPE is the standard abbreviation for Rating of Perceived Exertion. I have never heard it used to abbreviate Repeat Heart rate, Power and Performance Field Test.

      Data analysis tools on TrainingPeaks are a premium feature that requires a subscription. Depending on what device you recorded your test on, you will have access to various data in your device.

      Hi Lynda,

      I’m using your 40+ masters mountain bike plan and that is how the workout is labeled and I guess I thought that was the test name! The first time I did it I was able to get all the information but I think I must have had a 14 day free trial for Training Peaks. I did the workout on Zwift with my heart rate monitor, so I’m not able to find all the specifics to recalculate my HR and power zones. I do have a Garmin watch but I typically don’t wear it on my trainer, but my guess is that might work next time.
      Thank you for your quick responses! I’m really enjoying this training plan and I am finding I have more energy. It’s making me do short spins/recovery rides that I typically wouldn’t do, while still getting the same amount of miles I would normally do.

      Thank you,
      Tammy
