I know there are quite a few of you out there who use heart rate based training methods. Since my methods are based primarily on race performance and prescribed paces, I’m a little clueless about how you plan and log runs:
1) How do you plan your runs? Do you try to stay between some minimum and maximum heart rate?
2) When doing tempo runs or intervals, do you plan a warmup in a certain zone, then intervals in another zone with recoveries in another zone?
3) When you log your runs, what do you record? Min heart rate? Avg heart rate? Max heart rate?
4) Do you prefer to log heart rate information for each phase of your run?
I think that’s all I’ve got for now. The more responses, the better. Thanks.
