After a long ride yesterday, I did another ride this evening that was supposed to be Z2 (for me at least) but it turned into a hammer-fest as usual.
Diagnose for me please:
-Lower than normal HR for known route and perceived effort.
-Legs felt MUCH better than normal.
-Breathing way heavier than HR would indicate.
Isn't this contradictory? Shouldn't I have a higher HR when I'm overdoing the training?
My RHR was 42 this morning, about normal, maybe a couple beats higher than normal but not much higher.
