Hello all. I have just started looking through TftNA and Uphill Athlete, and I am considering starting a training program soon.
I did the HR drift test this morning, and I got a negative Pa:Hr of -9.79%.
I wasn’t really sure what to make of this. I am wondering if it could have to do with my relatively unstable HR, which tended to drift around 145 to 155. Is this is an meaningful result that suggests I should try again with a different target? Or do I need to try to maintain a more stable HR in order to get a more useful result?
(Edit to add that I chose this HR because I was still able to nose breathe and converse, but it felt like it was close to the upper limit of that level of comfort)
Many thanks for any advice!
