I know this has been answered a million times. I know I've seen it about half a million. It's just that now when I want to use the information, I can't find it. Argh!
Right now the zones in my Garmin are just based off its idea of what my max HR might be. I'd like it to display something moderately more useful.
I took the CTS field test (two 8 minute max efforts) and recorded the higher average HR.
1) Can I use that number as an estimate of LTHR or do I need to convert it somehow?
2) I have found many charts for creating zones as a percentage of LTHR, and some of them contradict each other. Which one has the best reputation?
So, this doesn't have to be perfect. But I do want useful zones. Help?
