Welcome to the forum.
Based on what you said, I think you should redo the test at a lower target HR.
Maybe you can do an indoor AeT test on a treadmill. Here is the link to the article on UA about the indoor test –
Hope this is helpful.
I’m a total noob and did the HR Drift test today. Wasn’t sure at what HR to start the test so I aimed at 150 (according to the MAF formula my AeT would be 148. I can nose breath all the way up in the low 160s, but when I hike I try to keep it under 150 because I’m pretty sure I have ADS).
Maintaining 150bpm proved to be quite difficult after the warm up and my HR dropped to ±137. In order bump it back up I’d have to run but because I’m kind of an aerobically deficient fatass and my mechanical efficiency is terrible I figured it’d be quite difficult to maintain 150 on flat ground so I settled for 137 at a fast walking pace.

Is it usable? Anything I can learn from it? Should I redo the test?
Thanks in advance!!
