Here a mail I got to read and think:
I was wondering not can we use ownzone but more specifically, have you used the ownzone difference before and after a workout to infer % loss in cardiac performance due to a given workout? Or as a marker for educating the athlete on Cardiac limitations after certain types of workouts. I am thinking about the way we teach athletes about the need to balance above LBP time to below LBP time. If after a -20 training they see a slight drop in ownzone and a recovery the next morning to pre ownzone number. A good amount of time. If not then wait till mid morning before next training session instead of first thing in AM.
Then compare there pre and post ownzone values after mile repeats that people think they need to do to improve. Perhaps the visual number will help teach them to consider % loss of performance using time during the workout and when to stop intervals based on this and not some number 6-8 because they like the number. Then after see what the ownzone is and how long for the heart to recover.
