Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

i don't have any of that stuff but i'd trust your subjective sleep experience over the device 100%. same goes for using the watch as a "coach." like it's useful to have HR data but RPE is probably more helpful. if something feels like the right pace for a 50-60 minute run, so you're tired at the end but not exhausted and could do it again tomorrow, then that's more important than having your HR in some externally-determined range. IMHO.

True about sleep. It does catch bad sleep nights accurately but that is all to it.
Not sure about coach. Truth is in the middle. RPE beats HR reading when we are talking about barely crossing a HR zone, but then again if you are constantly at around 90% max HR , that is not a 'comfortable' pace.
Work load / workout focus / workload distribution also feel accurate and very useful.
But yeah, bottom line is keep track of everything but also take everything with a grain of salt.

So true, time flies!

1½ hours full court basketball
Very good endurance, felt like an improvement in vert too. Getting solid rebounds. Challenging blocks at shots. Feels good.



14-15-16 February : felt totally beat , decided to give myself a break.



17 February 2020

TREADMILL 5K @ 39:17

Average heart rate : 143
Average km pace : 7:23

Went 'comfortable' ignoring HR. Ended up with average HR 143 , which is about 80% max.
Watch said it was a great workout for 'keeping medium pace for a long time'. Damn right!

26 February 2020

RUN 6KM @ 43:34

Went relaxed at all times. Slower than 'comfortable' but not super slow. That began at 6:25 pace and ended at 7:30 , averaged 7:00.
Wanted to do a longer distance but was short on time. Also was super windy and started getting too cold, cold wind on sweaty neck doesn't feel good at all.
Watch said it was a good workout for 'keeping medium pace'.
It also says that everything has fallen in place and that my fitness is now improving. Got my first VO2 max improvement too. Got the watch at 45, fist week down to 44, after 1 month down to 43, now back up to 44. Noice!
