Can anyone please tell me whether the recognised running HR zones also equate to triathlon training and if so, where the emphasis is (i.e. 3/4 easy and 1/4 medium and intense for eg)?
Last year was spent marathon training where there is so much emphasis on training within three zones: easy (65-75% of WHR), medium (75-85% of WHR) and pretty damn intense (85%+). I can only find real general descriptions of HR training for triathlon training and nothing specific for the three disciplines, particularly where they need to be combined. Thanks very much.

same kind of principles apply, except you can knock 5 or 10 beats off everything for cycling (max hr etc) because cycling uses fewer muscles than running, so its harder work to get to the same heart rate
