I know theres been a lot in the forums about WHR , RHR and percentages but I am having a bit of a problem with mine.I wonder if anybody could help? I'm 42 and have been running for four months, 5 days a week average 7 miles per run. My range is generally agreed to be around 116 and 145 for 60 - 80 % of MHR. However whenever I run, however slow, my actual range is 150-160 at around 10 min miles. This seems odd coz i'm quite fit , a bit overweight but without any health problems. Do I continue at this pace till my heart rate reduces or do I run faster (which I can) and see if the higher rate drops?
Hope somebody can point me in the right direction. Thnx Marvin
