Hello everyone. First post.
I ran last night with a new heart rate monitor and it showed in the 90% HR zone for an hour (calculated using age 34, resting pulse 60). It was over 172 bpm from 4th km to end.
I've got this result with other heart rate monitors and I've always run at very high heart rates. I'm just trying to use my heart rate monitor to set a program and all the programs seem to be written for "normal" people.
I'm certainly not elite (4:55m/ km for the hour) and it was low temperature.
1 Does this mean somehow that I have peaked? Is this my "limit"?
2 Is my technique/efficiency terrible? I'm 85kg and 6'1" and working on increase cadence.
3 What can I do to lower my heart rate so that I get some head room on times?
4 Am I vulcan?
