Make Z0 be 0 - 125
Then, add zones in 6 or 8 beat increments until you get to your max HR. 10 zones isn't critical, 10 is just a nice round number, that's all. If you have more (or a few less) than 10, it'll still work out just fine.
Zm = 185 - Infinity

Got that! :)

Hi Mechgt,

Love you plugin and have of course purchased a full license :D

Suggestion: You should probably out your recomended settings, as written above this post, in your Sticky: Introduction. The "dynamic" check box is not documented inthere, but is extremely useful/important.

Question: Do you have some good links to how to use TRIMP to plan training, periodisation, tapering etc. I sort of miss some guide lines on (1) how big a hole one should dig for one self (in terms of e.g. TSB) before climbing towrds zero again (2) how often should one cross the TSB=0 line; every month, every half year,...? (3) etc

Best Martin

There is a book about this:

The Runner's Edge

But I do not want to make bad advertisment. But I must :)
I have bought this book, because I have read many free pages from this book.
That have told many useful informations about tappering TSB etc trimps.

But to be honest in full book is not very much more informations about this topic to read.

So my suggestion is to read free pages from this book:

Perhaps others users will have different opinion, but I have read whole book and only useful informations were in free pages too.

But yes it's nice to buy it if you find it useful. For example there are many informations about pace based training. But I'm running in trail terrain, so this was not usable for me. But for others it might be very usable.

Took a chance and bought the book. I still prefer a good old fashioned book over webpages - as long as theh price difference is reasonable :oops:
