Training Effect (TE) is a data often get ignored by many runners.

For example the 1st pic shows that the TE is 3.3 which means this workout improves my aerobic capacity.

On the other hand if I’m doing cross training I’d want to keep the TE below 3, and below 2.5 if I’m doing recovery run.

It’s an great metric to help you monitor if you achieve the goal of your today’s workout.
