      lynda, another question for you. i am not sure what type of number i should be looking for with the power meter in the field test calculator. right now i just have a heart rate monitor and have never used a power meter. i would like to start the 12 week program tomorrow and it looks like tuesday would be the first field test. what do you recommend? thanks

      If you do not have a power meter you have no need for any power numbers. Follow the heart rate and PE (perceived exertion) guidelines. A power meter is not required to follow the plan.

      and the power level and heart rate zone calculator asks for a valid power level when you only put in a heart rate. is there a way to get around that?

        Ignore the power values and use HR only. You do not need a power value. The power value is optional.

        Use safari or chrome browser on mobile.
