I have been running off and on for quite a few years now, but only recently upgraded my Garmin to one with a HR monitor.
I was quite shocked to see how high it is. I have been using a trainer with my bike in the garage for a while with a HR monitor, and there even when I'm going at it, it rarely gets above 160.
However, as you can see from a 10K I did yesterday, when running my HR is barely below 160.
I'm 6'5, 38 years old and only slightly over weight. I have been reading about HR zones and I am wondering if I am running too fast which is stopping my aerobic development? Or does it not work like that? Does running at a higher HR actually help more than lower?
Any advice would be appreciated.
