Cycling power zones

    After having purchased my 70.3, level 3 plan, I set up my account and added my thresholds, etc. I noticed the 80/20 cycling power zones are extremely different than conventional power zones, which have worked best for me, previously. I find that the 80/20 Zone 3 is fairly intense compared to traditional zone 3. I asked for a refund, but Training Peaks refused, so I guess I’m would seeing how useless this plan would be if I chose to use more traditional cycling power zones than the ones provided by 80/20?

    I realize I may just need to drop in plan level, but as a stronger runner, fear that may end up really lacking there for me. I am an efficient swimmer but not very fast and also find the swimming in this plan is well beyond my typical abilities. Just a bit lost as to how to use this plan and can use some guidance. Otherwise I believe I’m stuck with a $75 plan I won’t use all because I couldn’t view the actual zones and particular workouts before purchasing. I’d love to make this work. Just a bit lost.

    Hi Leyla,

    Thanks so much for the quick response and the options. I will send that email. I am a huge believer in 80/20 and would like to make this work.
