Sorry if this has been covered before..
Training for a sub 40 10K.
Ive never measured myself over this distance so don't have a current PB, although I ran 1:28 for the Milton Keynes 1/2 in february.
Is it better to run intervals according to heart rate zone, or pace.
I've jst come back from a session where i set a target pace of 6:00 - 6:15 for each 1000m:
5x1000m intervals with 60 sec recovery
Looking at the data I comfortably made my target pace - each interval was 6:04 on average
But my heart rate was 176, which is around 82% of my max.
Should I be aiming to get my HR up to 85-90% for the 1000m, rather than setting a particular pace to run by (although this will inevitably increase my pace for the interval i expect)
Thanks for any help.
