I usually subtract 5% off the upper end, which would get you a lower end of 145.35. I’d say you are good with 140 but you could use a slightly lower number if it helps you stay below the threshold. I usually set an alarm a few beats lower. Btw my Aet and AnT are similar to yours. It’s gonna take me a while to raise the AeT but in the meantime I have noticed that I’m getting faster at a lower heart rate so that helps keep me motivated.
I posted this three days ago, but it didn’t post for some reason… delete if duplicate.
Curious about my Aet test. Do you think I blew this out? My previous test came in with Aet of 133, after 7 weeks of Base training this test I started at about 140 and ended at 158, that’s an 18 beat difference. But the first-half average is 145 and the last-half average is 153. So (145*.05)+145=152.25 Am I reading this correctly? Seems to me I am just barely over the 5% range by .75bpm. Does that mean my Aet is probably not 140? More like 138 or 139? I did this on a treadmill at 14% and 3mph, started after a 25min warmup. Another question, if I am not normally hiking at a 14% grade, rather running rolling hills or city streets, how crucial is it that I test my Aet running rather than walking? It seems like the treadmill is easier to control than my own pace.
I will link my test in the comments once this post posts.
I recently did my Ant threshold and came up w 168 if I did it correctly, I will also link this once this post is up….. So I started at 35bpm difference between the two. I would have to get my Aet to 155 to cure my ADS, which seems unachievable at the moment.
