i recently bought Training for the Uphill Athlete. Great Book i love it, thanks!
short background: i injured myself (stress fracture) early this year. I did couple of ultras in the past years. in general i like to roam around in the mountains (Switzerland suits this needs perfectly). Now i’m getting back to training and upping my volume slowly.
Today i wanted to test my AeT. I did a ~ 20′ warmup. Then ran uphill for ~45′ minutes. Was the longest more or less steady climb i could find near my home (6.3Km/630m vertical, grade: 10-13%). I took me about 50 minutes to reach the top. I analyzed my effort in TP (see screenshot).
Now i have some questions. I miss 10′ from your recommended 60′ test (i could go that pace longer). Is this a Problem?
My Pa:Hr is negative what exactly does this mean? Can i use this test anyway and e.g. set my upper Z2 to 141bpm?
Thanks in advance and have a great day everyone.
