How can Training Effect (TE) be added for t:: TE + TE =???

Postby the5krunner » Fri Oct 02, 2015 6:07 am

TE 2 + TE 2 doesn't equal 4 for training effect (TE).

Does anyone know how I can add together two sessions (AM Run + PM Bike) on the same day? Or at least estimate it?

I appreciate that ST3 does add them together but I'm not particularly bothered about that being wrong I'm interested to know.

thank you !!

Nope.

If you want to look at cumulative effects you want to use TRIMP and Training Load models.

There are several plugins for the PC app that will do this, and it's also a standard feature in our web app sporttracks.mobi.

Adding TE would be like adding the average heart-rate of two workouts and coming up with (165 + 165) = 330 BPM. It's a mathematically meaningless computation.
