larkimMy wife's singular inability to run at pace uphill could do with being helped out with that book
On a more generalised note, I find it very interesting how different activities spark different HRs for me.
I ran a 20m at avg 136 at the weekend and arrived home feeling (relatively) fresh. An hour on Zwift last night however averaging 125 and I felt knackered. Clearly down to muscular strength / adaption too as I'm not a regular cyclist.
(And then my wife encouraged me (and my kids and her) to a challenge of running up and down the 24 stairs in our house for 15 minutes and I maxed out at 175bpm, which is only a few beats off my max. I suppose the steps maxxing out HR isn't hugely surprising, but I didn't feel like I was at max compared to when I tried a maxHR test running about 8-10 months ago where I was at vomit stage by then).

K5 GusNew Polar optical strap out, ie an upgrade to the popular OH1
DCR review dcrainmaker.com
He likes it !.
One thing I didn't realise is that there is normally more of a lag with optical units than with chest straps when doing intervals on the bike, compared to run intervals :-
"most optical HR sensors look at running cadence via the accelerometer as a supporting factor for figuring out intensity shifts. So in this case, it sees my cadence naturally increase as I increase intensity, allowing the algorithm to consider that a valid increase faster than on the bike, where it doesn’t have extra data"

Daz LoveThanks for the link Gus.
I have been toying with the OH1 based on reviews as well as Larks being happy
Still haven't took the plunge but this will very likely be my next running purchase.

Daz LoveSee the original OH1 is about for £50 now. Will probably take the plunge on the new one but the reduced price on the original is making me think!!
