I am looking for a few tips on how to improve my running techniques.
I have been running for about 5 months now and been focusing mostly on 10k+ runs. In May I did my first semi-marathon in 1h41mins.
I am 29 years old, weight 61kg. I have recently started to monitor my heart rate and for 10km in about 42min my HR is in average of 169bpm.
I am planning to run the london-half marathon this october and was hoping to get a better timing.
I would be grateful if somemone could give me a few tips on how to use my HR to improve my timing.
As Cougie implies, there are a load of different approaches, but a helpful starting point (including instructions on how to test your maxHR) can be found here
