I was wondering the same. I’m 11 weeks out from my 100 miler and while I’ve improved my AeT HR considerably(142 improved to 152), I still have ADS (AnT is 177). My training plan (Big Vert) requires me to start doing Z3 uphill interval work next week, and I’m wondering if I just sub Z2 runs instead.
I have recently done a heart rate drift test and discovered that my aerobic threshold is somewhere below 140 @5:40/KM (going to nail it down over more tests over the rest of this week). I am 9 weeks out from a 50 mile mountain race.Am I on the correct path if i just slow the hell down but carry on the milage prescribed by the training plan in TFTUA while making sure to keep everything under my aerobic threshold? Should I keep doing hill sprints or totally forgo all training above Z2?
