I'm new to running. I started running like a month ago. I do 5k twice per week at a steady pace without stopping.
My resting heart rate is around 60-65bpm. Not sure what my max is! Nervous to find out as I heard you gotta really push it hard!
I've got a Garmin 610, the training effect is always coming up as 5.0. My average HR is showing as 172 during my 5k runs.
Am I to believe that I am pushing too hard even though it doesn't feel like it during and after my runs?
My heart rate tends to go back down to around 75-80bpm 30 minutes after a run.
