Looks like a good approach to me. I think you can use 180 / 150 for now.
Checking for any flaws in my testing, and that the data is useful
Hopefully someone can just help me to make sure I’m correct here.
I have recently done the treadmill AeT test (heart rate drift) and just tested my LT on a half an hour fast pace.
AeT Test: https://www.strava.com/activities/3199857920/laps
First 30 mins avg. 148bpm
Second 30 mins avg. 153bpm
That puts me at ~3.4% drift, placing me within my Aerobic Threshold if I am correct?
LT Test: https://www.strava.com/activities/3293198977/laps
As I’m fairly new to training, I went for the 30 mins rather than the 60 mins. It was fun hard, but my legs didn’t feel totally wiped out afterwards and I think I could’ve kept going for a while longer, maybe not till 60 mins though.
By my maths that puts the spread between AeT and LT at 20% (!!!) and in ADS territory. Which makes sense as I spent most of my teens boxing at very high intensities.
I feel like I’m always the one to gas out and bonk when I’m out in the hills with my friends. So I guess I’m fairly excited to get back on track and see some gains in speed and fitness.
Any flaws in my testing I should know about? I’m currently unable to work due to the Covid crisis, so for the foreseeable I can put in essentially unlimited training time. So far managed to clock up around 6-7 hours a week mostly at AeT, any more is a bit much for me for now I feel.
