Heart Rate Zones

MoleshomeLooking at my training log I get:
Heart Rate Zone Summary
HR Zone: 56-157bpm (Sub 70%): 87.3%
HR Zone: 157-164bpm (71-75%): 12.7%
Where are they set, only I'd like to break that first one up a bit more?

paul the builderFetch doesn't break them down any further than "sub 70%".
The numbers used for it are the ones you enter in your training log as Resting HR, and max HR. So you've entered 56 and 200 respectively.
Are you absolutely positive that 200bpm is your max? It might be, but if your real max was a bit lower - then you would probably get more of the breakdown of heart rate zones that you're expecting.

MoleshomeSurprisingly, for someone as ancient as me, it's as high as I've managed to push it in recorded memory. I thought it was 196 and then hit 200 at Fleet Half Marathon as I sprinted past my 23 year old nephew on the run in to the finish line.
