When doing the test outside, you should keep your HR steady and let your pace drift. If you are doing it on the treadmill, it is the opposite, but I would redo focusing on a steady HR.
Posting this also here (posted in the main forum as well), as maybe TG members will benefit from it.
I did the AeT test last week on a 400m running loop, which has about 1-2m elevation / loop, trying to keep my pace steady and let my HR drift. Is it valid to test this way? Or I should have keep my HR steady and let my pace slow?
I finished after 52 minutes, as my HR drifted from about 155 to 165, which felt huge, and I thought that I overestimated my beginning HR and it came close to my AnT (~170ish), yet TP reported a drift of 3,8%, so I guess my pace increased slightly as well, and my AeT is indeed around 155, just as last time (~2 months ago).
