Q&A #81 - "Race pace" or Z2-training for Ironman; FTP-tests vs. race-specific fixed heart rate tests
  • For slower Ironman athletes, target race pace and Z2 are pretty much the same. 
  • Is there any benefit in training (in particular running) at race pace if it realistically is just a slow shuffle? 
  • What are the pros and cons of a classic FTP-test vs. riding at a fixed (race-specific) heart rate (or power) and measuring how power (or heart rate) progresses for that fixed value?
