Hi all !! I have a question for professional runners. I am 90 kgs 6.1 ft. I have been running for the last 6 months for at least 3 times a week followed by some basic weight training and fitness training.
But since last week, I have started monitoring my heart rate as my trainer pointed out that it was extremely high 180 BPM. I have been comfortably able to run up to 1 hour at a speed of 10.1 Kmph. But normally I only run 30 mins 4.8 - 5 kms but ever since that day I haven’t been running for long as even with mild running at 8kmph for 5 mins my heart goes to 165 and then I have to reduce the speed and at the end of the work out I feel I haven’t done anything.
Please suggest what is a good maximum heart rate to train at ? and how to bring my high heart rate down. At an run of 11kmph within 2 mins my heart rate would jump to 180 or above can’t help thinking that if I do HIIT it will touch 200 or above. Maybe I have to give up running L
