    Hi Guys,

    I brought the 24 week and did the Zone 1 & 2 Test. I am about 6 weeks in and love the fact that I am getting fitter and stronger without repeating my previous mistakes of totally fatiguing myself and then needing extra recovery days because I overdid it. My question is as I move through the weeks, I am assuming my Zone 1 & 2 numbers will change. How often would you recommend repeating the Aerobic Threshold Test throughout the programme if at all?

    Sorry for the slow reply. You can repeat this low intensity test anytime you want because it is a fairly easy effort. Probably best to do it about every 4-6 weeks to see some gains.

    Hey Scott, Thank you for the reply -Its really helpful! I cant rate the programme enough – I just did my morning recovery run keeping a strict heart rate well below my Aerobic heart rate, at nearly the same pace that was putting me in Zones 3/4 runs earlier in the year! My total volume has dropped overall and i have way more in the tank! Great Book/Great Programme!!

    Hi Scott,
    In case I want to repeat this test, is the AeT the average heart rate for the first half of the 1 hour test (assuming the heart rate drift stays within 5% between the first vs second half).
    Thanks,
    S

    Scott, please ignore my question – I’m seeing a lot of your responses from other threads in the forum, so I get the idea.
