      Hi Lynda,
      I did a HR Time Trial yesterday. Compared to a year ago, I wondering if there is something not right, or am I getting better at pacing. Both were on a trainer due to weather her in Massachusetts
      I’m 56, currently starting week 7 of the LW Coaching Masters Cross Country Base Training Plan. I didn’t do any other TT’s once all the race cancellations happened.
      Previous Yesterday
      2/22/20 2/7/21
      Ave HR 176 182
      Dist 6.64 6.87 miles
      Ave Speed 20.6 19.9 mi/hr
      Ave Cadence 97 93 RPM

      I’m surprised to see HR threshold go up despite being another year older. I usually do these after having coffee so caffeine would have been consistent.

      Best,
      Tom

      Hi Tom,

      First off there is some discrepency with your data. Can you explain how you went further at a slower average speed? This makes any interpretation about performance murky. Were you slower or did you go further? Did your performance increase or decrease?

      My mistake, put a number in the wrong column…
      2/7/21
      HR 182
      Dist 6.64
      Speed 19.9
      Caden 93

      2/22/20
      HR 176
      Dist 6.87
      Speed 20.6
      Caden 97

      Looks like 2021 is lower performance at a higher HR.

        Yes, that is what your numbers say.
