Thank you. I appreciate the clarification. Not trying to derail the thread btw. I think 5w/kg is possible for me (if I stopped running anyway!) and trying to figure out what my physiology says for me.with what are fairly low overall numbers, particularly at the top end.
Current FTP is around 280 at 65 kg but last year for both my target races FTP was similar, but at around 60.5kg so around 4.6W/kg. I know that when I’ve had running injuries in the past and just ridden (although I didn’t test at the time) I would gain a reasonable amount on the bike which puts me fairly close to the 5W/kg mark
I’m just trying to correlate some of the data I have from the lactate testing to see if there’s any actionable information.
That HR data for example (just to keep it sport specific as that’s the data I have) had my MLSS HR at around 162 (16.7kph roughly), from a max of 170. I averaged a HR of 153 for my last marathon, so pretty close to MLSS I percentage terms which in turn is pretty close to my max.
Obviously it’s sports specific but the HR numbers I have from riding data correlate well to the running numbers so show a similar trajectory with a fairly small decrease as the distances go up.
