    Hi, im having a big mismatch between planned pace and completed pace in my workouts.
    The planned pace is 05:57, but i had to run at a pace closer to 7min in order to stay in HR zone 2. I have updated my threshold pace in TP based on a recent 5k all-out run.

    Should i actually be running this fast and ignore my HR, or is the planned pace wrong?

    Hi. I’m not a coach. It seems you are trying to use HR and Pace at the same time. I assume you are using HR as your target metric and Traing Peaks is offering a low / high pace prediction. Use your metric (HR) for your target and ignore the ESTIMATE from TP as it is not pulled from any pace zones you put into TP but calculated some other way.
    I use Power and my Pace is always different to that estimated by TP.

    Re-reading this, you may be based on Pace, but the same principle applies, just use your one target metric and not two. So HR or Pace, not both.

    As FatDad suggests, stick with the metric in you plan.

    There are a couple of things you can also look at to make sure you have your zones zeroed in. First, you can use any level II effort and the talk test protocol; secondly, you can take a look at some of your completed workout and verify that you do not have a significant unexplained pa/hr or pwr/hr decoupling.

    Thanks!

    My plan is HR-based, so il take your advice and ignore the planned pace.

    You could also go by feel on this, see which one feels right . Zone 2 should feel easy. 3-4/10
