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.
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?

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!!
