I live at pretty close to sea level and most of my training hikes are between 2500 and 6000 feet. So I have this question, too, though I am afraid I know the answer… AeT doesn’t change with altitude.
Just finished my final weekend workout and next week will be my taper week before heading to Ecuador. A few acclimatization peaks and then Cayembe and Chimborazo.
I have found my Garmix Fenix watch to be very accurate when using it side by side with my Polar chest strap, so I plan on wearing that and will be able to monitor my HR while on the trip.
With that in mind, while climbing I would still like to stay in my aerobic zone correct? Does the AET remain the same or how does that translate in higher altitudes? Or are there other tips to stay in the zone while climbing at altitude.Nose breathing? Any suggestions would be great!
