*Correction: According to the test my AnT is 183 bpm. (not 193) bpm
I am starting my third training cycle following TfTNA and decided to do a Gas Exchange Test (GET) to get a clearer picture about my AeT and metabolic efficiency.
We did 5 minutes stages with 1 km/h speed increments.
According to the test my Metabolic Efficiency Point “MEP” (RER = 0,85) occurs at a heart rate of around 127 bpm / speed 6,5 km/h (see MEP Graph.pdf).
According to the same test my AeT is at a heart rate of 164 bpm / speed 9,2 km/h. That is when my lactates begin to rise (1.5 mmoI/L).
Please see detailed results on Page 2 of attachment (Test Results.pdf) and the Lactate Graph on Page 3.
According to the test my AnT is 193 bpm. I will disregard this and do the recommended DIY Anaerobic Threshold Test Outdoors
So my questions:
– What are my training zones?
– Does the upper limit of my Z1 is at a heart rate of 164 bmp (Aet) or at 127 bmp (MEP)?
– any other interpretations or suggestions based on my results?
– Should I avoid Z2 training?
In any case, it seems clear that I need to train my body to improve metabolic efficiency and burn more fats. As apparently my AeT is higher than my MET I hope I can do this by diet and training smarter (in a fasted state) as opposed to running at a painfully slow and potentially injuring 127 bmp / 6.5 km/hr. I would appreciate any feedback on this.
My sincerest thanks and appreciation to the Uphill Athlete’s founders and community!
