[Bike] FTHR

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Fri, 5 May 2017 08:28:07 -0300

I'm putting this here because otherwise I lose the info.

FTHR is heart rate at functional threshold.  Which I measure by
climbing up San Cristobal.  It's not a great approach because it's a
bit short, but it's local, has few cars, and I know it well enough to
pace myself.

Using

I can then calculate my HR zones.

https://www.strava.com/activities/835929509/segments/20385215226
2017-01-18  HR 143  Power 236W  Time 17:43
https://www.strava.com/activities/860360918/segments/20958049374
2017-02-09  HR 150  Power 249W  Time 17:18

2017-05-05  HR 154  Power 223W  Time 18:07

My best attempt so far (9 Feb) had a longer warm-up.  Seems like that
would be a good idea in future.  Also, not sure what the significance
is in the trend towards higher HR.  Maybe it's noise?  Better pacing?
Adaptation?
