What does a pace-based threshold model mean when you get off the treadmill and the track and out on the trail? Nothing.
New/old guy here. 40 year old firefighter transitioning to endurance training after years of strength and HIIT. Just completed a VO2 max/Aet/ANT test at my local peak performance centre. Haven’t had the chance for a follow up consultation from them and I’m hoping to get going on building my aerobic base asap.
I’ve attached my test results. In my search through the threads, I’ve come to understand that someone with ADS can focus on more Zone 2 to better build an aerobic base. Am I understanding this correctly? My test has the upper end of Zone 1 at a HR of 116, which for me is a brisk walk. Anything jogging, bumps me up into Zone 2.
The other area of question is that the place I had the test done suggests that measuring pace/speed is a more accurate way of staying in the different zones. Is this something that any of you use?
Love the book TFTNA and really appreciate the community on these forums. T
