I had similar toughts on my AeT tests. I’m curious what the pros says.
I apologize for the multiple posts, I would tried to continue old threads but old posts don’t seem to get much attention around here. Also, I would love to attach the link to my Aet tests but it seems that when I do that, the post does not post. If someone has any advice I would love to attach these tests because I am very confused.
Basically, three weeks ago I did a 15% incline treadmill test and found a 5.2% drift at 140bpms. So I thought my aet must be 139/140ish, which improved on my original 133 so I was happy.
Then I did it outside a week later outdoors on one of my flat 90 minute Aet runs. My average HR was 142 and my Pa:Hr was between -0.26 to 1.5 depending on which section I highlight. I inquired here and Scott thought maybe I had a good day of running. And perhaps I am more efficient at running flat than hiking steep.
I then really tried to overshoot last week on the same outdoor flat street course at 152bpm and again my Pa:Hr was BELOW zero: -0.63
Finally, I did it again today, averaging 162 for an hour and my Pa:Hr was 1.9
If I shot from 133 to 160 in 11 weeks I would be amazed. Perhaps it is because of the cold? The treadmill was in a sweaty gym.
This 162bpm run today felt like a tempo run, I still only had a Pa:Hr 1.9 but it didn’t feel like I could do that forever that’s for sure. So I am confused. I did a Ant test at 168 three weeks ago but I think I could have gone harder so likely Ant is 175
