Hi, I did Crescendo for the first time this morning and for most of it my heart rate was well above the zone 2 expected according to the display, touching 1 beat below my LTHR at the end of the highest power step. I am typically finding the morning workouts harder than the same one in the afternoon, but hoping that passes.
In short I am wondering if I am getting the right training effect from the workout?
In long I have been reading about the importance of of the first lactic acid inflection point, where the base levels of lactate just start to build up, and wonder how best in increase it. Endurance workouts seem like a good place to start, but since I felt like I passed this first threshold before/around the 75% of FTP step would I be better off doing something different? I am currently following the MTB preseason plan, wk 1.
