I am just wondering if anyone has any information regarding how regular running will change my heart rate when training? I have a max of 187 and during the 5k Parkruns my avg has been 173bpm (for approx 29mins). This feels like a huge workload but it is pretty normal when I run or cycle. My heart rate does come down pretty quickly when I stop. (Similar to a formula 1 car!)
Will regular running bring down my average or do I just have to live with it. I would like to have more power and a lower heart rate in order to decrease my time.
