I completed my first 30min crit last weekend. After looking at the info from my Garmin I noticed that my HR was above my LTHR the entire race. Is this normal? I did not have the benefit of drafting since I missed the lead group and the rest of the feild was strung out where I was mostly up front. My training is not structured but ride between 80-150miles a week including 2, 2+ hour "A" training rides. I followed the Time Crunched program 3 weeks prior to the race. How can I keep my HR up the high for 30 but struggle with 3(3x2) threshold workouts?
