Subject: RE: No fluff plan
No, I do not have experience with the No Fluff plan. I however think that it might be difficult to convert the Heart Rate Bike Workouts to Power. The HR plan is given in terms of %Threshold HR (i.e. 90%) and in terms of HR Zones (i.e. Z3).
How would you do the conversion to power? My FTP is 313 watts and my Bike Threshold HR is 152 BPM. My bike power & HR zones are the following:
BIKE Power Bike HEART RATE
Zone 6: 324-2000 watts
Zone 5: 284-323 watts Zone 5C: 162-239 BPM
Zone 5B: 156-161 BPM
Zone 5A: 152-155 BPM
Zone 4: 244-283 watts Zone 4: 144-151 BPM
Zone 3: 204-243 watts Zone 3: 136-143 BPM
Zone 2: 150-203 watts Zone 2: 129-135 BPM
Zone 1: 0-149 watts Zone 1: 0-128 BPM
My HR HR limit for the Bike Leg of a 70.3 race is 130 BPM, but that puts me at about 255W. Similarly my last sprint triathlon I was at 144-147 BPM HR on the bike leg but was at about 290W. So there isn't liner relationship between power and heart rate. Unless you are a lot better at converting HR to power than I am, you would be better to find a Power Based Plan for the bike than to try to convert HR to Power.
