    Re: Zone 1-2 becoming zone 3 in weeks 5-7 base period (TFTUHA). Does this infer zone 3 like with weighted hill climb, meaning that the intensity is higher but your HR may not necessarily be in zone 3. Especially since it is being done on steep terrain. Or is the goal to maintain HR above AET, for this long duration.

    Thanks

    JB,

    I just referred to my 24-week mountaineering plan and for the weeks you mentioned, it is Steep Uphill Hike with your HR in Zone 3 (AeT + 10-15 bpm). For a 1.5 hour workout, it includes 20 min warm-up, 20 min. of Zone 3 followed by easy workout for remaining time.

    Hope this is helpful.
