Thanks Nellers.

TheBeard, it's just another stat to track really. For much of the lockdown (with no races) I've been doing all my training at 142bpm and I've seen some encouraging progress at that effort when I do a 5-mile run on the flat. The "beats per mile" stat contributes is helpful as alongside the pace hopefully getting quicker, the "beats per mile" should get lower as you get fitter.

There's a very good runner who has a blog that mentions it here. There is a paragraph just above his graph in this post.

Beats per mile was the one infallible measure of fitness that I used to believe (when I had a reliable HR monitor! The old strap with Garmin 305 and 310 worked way better than the modern fance optical HR monitor that I now have!)

Welcome to Fetch. Any questions, just ask. Some great threads on here about HR based training. :-) G

So, is there a difference between following a Fetchie and buddying them?

There is indeed. Following a Fetchie means you'll get a notification up there ^ whenever they log some training. Buddying a Fetchie allows them to see blogs you've limited to "buddies only" (but not vice versa unless they buddy you back) and gives you an additional filter to use for some lists.

Got something to say?
