    Hello,

    Just did an AeT treadmill test. The conditions were: 15min/mile with 10% incline grade for 90 min with the warm up included as the first 30 min. If I am reading the test correctly, my AeT HR is ~162. I averaged 160 BPM for the first 30 min, and 164 for the second 30 min. The increase was ~2.5%.

    Am I reading this right? If so, should I attempt another AeT test at a higher intensity?Link below.

    Thank you for sharing the Training Peaks link.

    Was your warmup at the same incline and pace as the test (10%, 15 min/mile)? Also, have you done your Anaerobic Threshold test?

    Alex, If everything was in line as Shashi is asking, Then in looking at your workout, I would say your AeT is 158. I started at 30 minutes and did the first half/second half averages which you mentioned above. But what Mark Postle (I believe I interpreted this correctly) said to do is to then take the average of the first ~five minutes after the warmup to get your AeT. That is 158. I hope this helps and is not incorrect.

    Is the HR data file included from chest strap data? It seemed slightly jumpy for a steady state TM effort, for example about 33 min in there’s a jump from 152 – 164 in a pretty short time frame. Small to medium data errors can throw the test off a fair bit. Also did you run the entire 90 min at the same pace angle of incline?

    Thank you for all the replies. The entire run was at the same incline and pace. I used the Garmin HRM Pro chest strap. I have not done an AnT test yet, but estimate mine to be around 180. My plan is to continue my base training with a new target HR of 155, and retest in about 6 weeks.
