Your average HR over the last 20' of the TT is your Lactate Threshold Heart Rate (LTHR) . 2) Distance covered in the full 30' CD: fill in the remaining time in Z2/3 . Please email me this info ASAP! . To calculate your run training zones, you will need to determine your LTHR (above) and then either plug them into the BTMS LTHR calculator or use the percentages that are listed on the training zone chart that was emailed to you and is attached to this workout (look for the paperclip at the top of the "description" box when you click on the workout in Training Peaks
