@kcory If you go out of zone you will only prolonging your pain/embarassment. Keep it slow and what you’ll notice is that the length of time it takes you to hit that ‘drift’ will be longer and longer. It’s actually a good thing to pay attention to and I think you’ll find it quite motivating to see that duration extend, and soon after that point your Aerobic Threshold HR will start to migrate north. Keep at it! You’re on the right track.
I’m working on adjusting/fixing my aerobic base by overcoming ADS. As with others, when training in Z2 (AeT/144bpm) the heart rate has a tendency to drift in the later portion of the workout and it’s a SoB/embarrassing to keep it in zone.
Should I permit the HR drift later in the workout or walk to keep it below AeT (144bpm).
