I guess I should clarify my questions to everyone….based on this more or less faulty drift test from my HR strap being wonky…
What have you done to improve the ‘dropping’ factor in your HR band? Mine was snug and wetted, but I guess I could crank it tighter?
Should I aim for a higher HR for my next drift test?
Should I aim for a flatter course for my next test? (this was around 200′ of gain in 5 1/2 miles)
Also, in the other AeT forums people are posting AeT’s at like 150, am I just that unfit aiming for 118? I’m a mountain guide in the cascades who runs/bikes/tours a fair amount, I am no stranger to big days in the mountains, and consider myself pretty good at the ‘long burn for many hours’ sort of activities….i’m kind of depressed at my apparent lack of fitness, any insight?
