No, TP does NOT auto-calculate threshold.
I have been paying attention to CTL more in the last month or two as I experiment with a more rapid build and more volume than is typical for me for a 70.3 (this will be my 11th HIM). But now you guys have me wondering.
Some of the posts on this thread refer to getting FTP wrong which throws CTL out of whack (through the IF which affects TSS if I understand this stuff correctly). Training Peaks autocalculates threshold right?
It is showing that 10 min/mile is my threshold run pace which is ridiculous. Can I see my bike FTP somewhere?
I am handling the increased load fairly well (10-12 hours per week). I feel really good. My CTL is at an all-time high and rising. But because of the FTP thing I'm sort of skeptical now. Although I guess the slope of the line is still relevant.
You must enter your thresholds (swim, bike, run...power, pace, HR) manually and calculate your desired training zones. TP can be configured to alert you when it detects that your threshold MIGHT have moved. IIRC, it only does that for sustained efforts longer than 20minutes that are above your theoretical maximal capability based on your current threshold. But, it will NOT make any actual changes, unless you tell it to do so.
