HI Guys, sorry if this has been asked and answered a thoushand times i tried a search and scanning through old threads but could not fins and answer.
I have just signed up for Ironman Wales, so I have a bit of time to prepar. Any way
I can run a comfortable 10 km is a bit less than an hour but having read and reread Don Finks Be Iron Fit I am planning to follow one of his 30 week programs, probably the intermediate as I am quite busy with work in the summer months.
Any way my question is this. I live in a very hilly area, great for training but I am struggling to stay in HR zone 2 unless I just walk for most of the time. Should I stick with this or should I improve my anerobic fitness so that I can at least get to a slow jog at the correct heart rate?
Thanks for taking the time to read.
Oh and if it helps
i am am 167cm 67kg and about 12% BF and Have spent the last 6 Mths weight lifting
