      Lynda,

      I took my second field test for HR today on the Time Crunched Expert Base plan.

      Fatigue will depress heart rate and this is often seen in the second test in a training plan. The fact that you are certain your performance has increased is the important factor – nice work!

      HR can also drop with increased cardiovascular fitness – your heart is stronger so doesn't need to pump as fast to circulate the amount of blood required to fuel a given power output.

      Work from the new heart rate zones.
