When I establish training zones for your training, you can locate them within Training Peaks. I will often do this in the days after a Time Trial (TT) or sometimes a race, especially if you message me soon after you load up the data from your TT.
When you are logged into Training Peaks, if you click on your name in the top right corner and select ‘Settings’ this menu will appear.
When you click on ‘Zones’ it will expand to give you this menu below.
You can click on the ‘Heart Rate’ (HR), ‘Power’ or ‘Speed/Pace’ to find out your training zones. HR is used for both running and cycling. Power is used for cycling and Speed/Pace is primarily used for running.
Once you have clicked on a type of Training Zone you can then scroll down and find the appropriate sport.
It is recommended that you load your respective zones into your HR monitor or GPS watch, whether it is a Garmin, TomTom or Polar or some other brand.
