If you are really fast, there is a significant difference between the LTHR and 10k HR, 10k HR higher.
But if you are slow, difference will go down, until zero (if you run 10k in an hour), or even the opposite if really slow.
Hopefully, TP take it into account to evaluate the difference ?
I hope so too. It took me 52 minutes to complete the 10K and I was hitting negative splits. All the data gathered showed me performing well as I had slight increases in stride length and cadence per mile with slight decreases in GCT, and all the while my HR gradually climbing without blowing up. I finished it with a tiny bit left in the tank to possibly go another quarter mile.
Maybe I'll just take the middle ground and use average of the 2 numbers since LTHR simply a tool to set zones and to train more efficiently. I'll tie the new zones in with RPE and see if they feel right.
