How do I get my heart rate down?
If you're not close to your max at the end of a 5k then you really haven't run it hard enough. If your HR is coming down quickly afterwards then that's a sign that you've got a good fitness level.
Regular training will bring your HR down but I hope that you'll race faster rather than at a lower HR.
