There's a gap between my Zone 2 and Zone 3 paces
November 23, 2023 7:16 PM
When you look at your pace chart on your "ZONES" page in the app, you may notice a gap between Zones 2 and 3 for pacing.
This is not a mistake, this gap is MEANT to be there.
The graphic here (purple hilight) shows where that gap would be in your Zones chart.
This gap is meant to be there because the space in between Z2 and Z3 is no-man's land; it's too fast to be Low Intensity/endurance building, too slow to create any sort of training effect. In other words, your pace zones are correct.
This is based on a pyramidal training structure, which is what we use in the MOTTIV app. Science shows this is the most effective structure for training, hands down.
Here's a link to a video that goes into depth to explain our style of training, and why things are set up as they are in the app.
