The simplest and quickest thing to do is to find your ventilation thresholds, VT1 and VT2. Figure your lactate threshold heart rate (LTHR) is just below VT2 and the top of Zone 2 is just above VT1.

In the past 25 years, I've done very few HR tests, relying on the above for what is really more accurate information than a test will produce. Never use max HR (MHR) to set your zones. Useless, no matter how you get it.
