Just curious, but does anyone else do any of their runs by RPE? I have a Stryd Footpod and have been running by power for about 18 months. However, I recently started doing the easy runs by RPE. This is working really well. Faster or slower, depending on how I’m feeling. Sometimes around 70% of my CP. Other times, closer to 80%. But every time, it feels like the level of effort is just right.
I’ve noticed that RPE foundation runs are the slowest 1) when it’s the first run of the week and I was off the day before and 2) when I’ve done a hard run the day before. But heat makes a big difference in what the “easy” pace is for the day.
