Ryan and Trevor field questions on max heart rate, TSS, recovery in athletes who only train 8-10 hours per week, protein consumption during ultra-endurance events, and more.

1:48 How critical or valuable is it to have recovery weeks if you’re only training 8-10 hours per week total? And how do you come down from a big week (almost twice what is normal), such as after the Rapha Festive 500 week.

11:01 How do you establish max heart rate to then establish training zones?

23:03 Should I be including my TSS from morning walks into my overall training workload? Does this inflate numbers artificially, or is it critical to take these walks into account to get the clearest picture?

32:55 How do I determine how much protein I should consume in long endurance events?
