I did it on a treadmill. The tester said the treadmill version is more accurate than the cycling version for most people. The logic was that the cycling test could be limited by muscle strength as opposed to aerobic capacity.
Calling me any sort of athlete would probably be a misnomer. But yes, I tend to run and lift as much as I ride the bike. I will be competing in a triathlon later this year (need to get better at swimming).
And I will be retesting. I did this because the three people I’m doing the triathlon with are all a bit more serious about this kind of thing and track these numbers fairly religiously. They invited me to join them. I think I’ll be testing these numbers every two months.
How can I use these numbers to maximize the benefits of my TR workouts?
Also, somewhat relatedly, is there a way to “convert” TR workouts to running workouts? In other words, find how the wattages correspond the HR, and go on a run that follows the target HRs?
