Thanks both, I hadn't been staying upto date on thread so didn't realise I'd jumped into middle of a chat but not felt ignored when realised.

(For clarity my bpm ref was beats per minute during session, I do find beats per mile useful reflection post session).

Dvorak RPE feels same, pace is defo slower too so I feel that, perhaps more in my aging ego though 😅

Hi folks. I haven't come across a HR training book but I haven't looked to hard either. If you fancy a free book then have a look at my blog.

About This Thread

Maintained by Elderberry
Everything you need to know about training with a heart rate monitor. Remember the motto "I can maintain a fast pace over the race distance because I am an Endurance God". Mind the trap door....

Gobi lurks here, but for his advice you must first speak his name. Ask and you shall receive.

A quote:

"The area between the top of the aerobic threshold and anaerobic threshold is somewhat of a no mans land of fitness. It is a mix of aerobic and anaerobic states. For the amount of effort the athlete puts forth, not a whole lot of fitness is produced. It does not train the aerobic or anaerobic energy system to a high degree. This area does have its place in training; it is just not in base season. Unfortunately this area is where I find a lot of athletes spending the majority of their seasons, which retards aerobic development. The athletes heart rate shoots up to this zone with little power or speed being produced when it gets there." Matt Russ, US International Coach
