my guess is with only a HR drift of 1-2 percent, I think it’s likely your AET is higher than the HR you targeted for this test and you should try again when rested and increase your target HR by like 3-5 bpm and see what the drift looks like.
I did the aerobic threshold test this morning. Unfortunately, nature called rather aggressively, and I had to stop after 47 minutes. (I also completed 15 minutes of warm up prior to this.) I still analyzed my data on Training Peaks using the described method. If I break my training into two halves (each ~23 minutes), my average rate between those two sections only differs by 2 BPM. Is this result fine given how stable the heart rate has been or should I re-take the test?
