Are you using Training Peaks? Can you make the workouts public and share the link?
I’ve done three HR Drift tests trying to find the correct AeT HR. I’ve had confusing results so though Id post hear for advice.
Test 1 – HR135 – Drift 1.07%
Test 2 – HR140 – Drift – 1.59%
Test 3 – HR145 – Drift – -0.34%
1&2 were on the same route, seaside path, reasonably flat.
3 was around a flat path in a park.
Test 3 was completed this morning. This week has been an easy week in my training where I have dropped volume. I have been running easy for several months, building up again after a cycling accident in January. No interval training, just steadily building volume back to my average 40 mile week.
Is a drop in normal volume enough to give a negative drift result even at the higher 145 HR?
I plan to run another test next week at HR150 in the same location as test 3. Is this the correct next step?
Thanks for your input.
