Thanks for your advice Reed !
I will do a heart rate drift test to confirm my AeT. But if my AnT is well estimated to 190 then I may have great opportunity to increase my AeT and pace at AeT. I will focus on that !
Sorry that was unclear, but these 8 weeks are just the beginning of my plan. The entire plan is for now:
– 8 weeks building aerobic base: I will consider doing more consistent shorter trainings in Z2, thanks for the advice. I am also planning to increase the volume each week, and take a “lighter” recovery week after each cycle of 3 weeks. I might also extend this base period depending on my ADS.
– then 4 weeks bringing more intensity in Zone 4-5 to develop my V02max: 2x per week short to medium Interval training, with Z1-2 trainings to recover and maintain base. But this will depend on how much I can develop my aerobic base after 8 weeks.
– then 1x week Interval training to maintain the Max aerobic speed, also still Z1-2 trainings. Rest until the final objective!
