Also referred to by the acronym TTR, this represents the amount of time to recover from a high-intensity effort. Time to recover can also be associated with a recovery intensity. For example, TTR at rest (0 watts) is shorter than TTR at 150 watts, assuming Threshold Power is above 150 watts. That is, you recover sooner at 0 watts than you do at 150 watts. Using a recovery power other than 0 watts is useful to keep track of how long it will take to recover while still producing power, such as riding in a group behind the draft. Recovery power cannot be greater than or equal to Threshold Power.
TTR is a key feature in workout design using Target MPA.
