-my previous AeT tested 3 months ago was at 143bpm, 6’32/km, PA:HR 2.75.
-my AnT tested 3 months ago was around 167 bpm.
I’ve done 2 HR drift test in 2 days to determine my AeT.
First test : 2:30 PM (feed state) strength workout in the morning: 158bpm, 5:48/km, PA:HR 3.39.
Second test: 6:30 AM (fasted) : 146bpm, 5:50/km, PA HR: 2.86.
The RPE are the same for the 2 tests: its not hard, but not easy neither. I could do long sentences but surely not holding a long conversation during all the run. I could continue the same pace with the same effort for 2 hours (or more?), I would say.
The results taken individualy look normal as you can see on the two files here attached.
The pace is the same as well as the effort, but the difference in HR is huge (12 bpm difference).
Two questions: how to explain that difference in HR? Morning vs afternoon? Fed vs fasted?
Which HR to consider for setting my AerT?
