A couple of Zone 2 questions. I am in the Sweet Spot polarized plan, so Tuesday Zone 2 ride are heart rate driven. My first question is Zone 2 one the VO2 max and sweet spot days. Is keeping it in Zone 2 power more important during the Zone 2 portions of these rides, or like Tuesday, should I focus more on keeping it in Zone 2 heart rate (I found my HR drifted up out of Zone 2 in the latter part of the ride after the intervals.
My second question is how important is it on the SS ride to do some zone 2 before and some after. I picked a TrainerRoad workout that had a good 3x10 min SS and then just added on Zone 2 for 45 minutes at the end. The “prescribed” workout had 20 min zone 2 before and 20 min zone 2 after. So I guess my question is whether I #FTfP’d or not!
