Running to heart rate
9:33am, 1 Feb 2013
dibbersJust getting in to heart rate training but need advice as to how I monitor it in practice. I have a gramin with everything set up.
If I want to run in a, say, 70-80% MRH zone, what happens if the route is hilly? Clearly my HR is going to rise, and probably above the 80%. So, so I ensure I slow RIGHT down on the hills to prevent this, or do I ignore this and just makesure the flat bit are in the right zone. I'm thinking even walking briskly up a hill might elevate my HR past 80%.

icemaidenTry the heart rate thread peeps, you'll get people who know what they're talking about his http://www.fetcheveryone.com/viewtopic.php?id=3882
The answer is you have to slow down, that's what HR training is about. It can be frustrating but once you've done it a bit (and that bit can vary between weeks, months and years) you'll be running up that hill.
