ilogical recovery time
I use a suunto 9 baro, without measuring the heart rate (i noticed a very bad lecture from the wrist band) and I set my pace zones correctly (I have been running regularly for more than 15 years) But i noticed that since a couple of months my recovery times seem to go through the roof.
How can I “Modify” or tune with my stats to make them seem more logical
for example I did a 13km run @5km/min which is kind of a “recovery run” for myself. (I am more than able to run sub 4km/min) and it showed 30+ hours of recovery.
@juan-biel keep in mind that recovery is cardiovascular not muscle recovery. Its the time to the next optimal training. 30h from what you say sounds ok to me.
@dimitrios-kanellopoulos Thank you
I just rechecked and it showed 49h recovery and a PTE of 5.0, which is far from my maximum effort
@juan-biel I dont think max effort has todo something. If max effort that its like a week + recovery for your heart.
At what zone are you running with 13km and 5min/km pace ?
@dimitrios-kanellopoulos last time I used a heart rate strap (around 1 year ago) it showed 140bpm at that pace, (rest rate 50. max hr 185)
@juan-biel so that is like pace zone 1 ? 2 ?
@dimitrios-kanellopoulos 2, 3 maybe
but my question is if there is a posibility to tune/measure the recovery time without using a heart rate measurment
pd: off topic, but Since the “dissapreance” of the movescount web I have been a huge fan of QS, thank you
@juan-biel I am not sure but I would:
- Try to set the pace zones higher. Maybe that affects the recovery… I am not sure.
13Km at pace zone 2-3 might be the thing causing this.
I ll try to ask Suunto as well
If it can help, i think this recovery time seems high to you because you run regulary. I’ve paused for around 21 months. And when i restart it tell me the first time something like 64h ! Trust me or not but a the 64h all my muscle pain was totally gone. Since i respect the recommandations and honestly every time i feel myself at 100%
So for me it’s ok.
