Sky run as AnT test?

    Hi guys,

    I was racing 1.5 weeks ago. It took my exactly one hour:

    I was running roughly 50% of the course and the other I was power hiking. Always switching during the race depending on the grade. I was performing at the max I think. After the finish line I was barely able to walk the first 15 minutes right after.

    As I understand it correctly, running is tiring my quads, while power hiking is using my hamstrings mainly, right? So I’m not sure if the AnT is valid, since I was “only” performing ~30 minutes running and ~30 minutes power hiking.

    Can I use the 185 bpm as a new running AnT? Can I use the 185 bpm for mountaineering well?

    Best regards

    Maybe some more background:
    My HR_max is 202 (tested 2 years ago) and it is really, really hard to get my HR higher than 185 bpm when doing 30s/30s.

    And wearing boots and carrying a backpack while mountaineering makes the 185 bpm unreachable (I think this points again to my very bad ME).

    …and it was all uphill (rather than rolling). After this event, 185 is a pretty solid estimate of AnT HR.

    …but I wouldn’t conclude very bad ME. Lower HRs with loads is normal.

    Thanks, Scott!

    That makes me aerobic deficient again ? damn.

    Despite training for 1.5 years solely below AeT, it seems that two weeks of threshold training made my AnT increase by 6 beats (last AnT in May 2019 @179).

    Maybe it’s time again to test if my AeT is still at 165 or higher.

    Best regards
