    Is it ok to take orthostatic heart rate test immediately after I wake up in the morning, go to the toilet and come back (still very dizzy I am)?

    After long sleep and nighttime toilet visit(s) your body may be dehydrated so your blood may be thicker > elevated heartrate? Thixotropy makes your body and body fluids stiffer > elevated heartrate? Bloodsugar is low as you climb up > body feeling little 'chaotic' > elevated heartrate?

    Wrong timing = wrong test results? Should I do it some other time when body is elastic, fresh, steady-state?

    Any opinions?

    Forget it and ride your bike. Sounds like a waste of valuable training time to me.;)

    I'm kinda referring into very same situation found when taking a nap between morning and evening workouts. Person is stiff and dizzy for a while and needs some period of time before entering next workout (at least when workout needs good balance and/or cordination). Or is it everybody jumping up from the bed, glass of water, helmet, shoes..60 seconds and gone already?[​IMG]

    Don't think it's a waste of training time, but I must admit I'm not a pro coach. Always thought recovery meant at least half success in this business..Maybe simple solution is just to do it always same time same conditions.

    I suppose that instead of RHR other methods are more widely used for estimating the recovery status; wether you can't hold your wattage for the target duration due to feeling crap maybe it's better to ride home and take a rest or easy day.

    Yeah I understand that, to be honest I've done that mostly myself and just skipped if not able to hold it.
