Good morning and a real relevant post and grateful for it .. considering the heat on Sundays undulating Alton Water 10k. I've had older Garmin + HRM strap and now have the Garmin 225 which uses a different technology and the HRM output does feel right, I don't think there is calibration issues I know if at 150bpm I feel tired and continued higher pace 160 to 170bpm is what id expect for myself at 52 years of age and 15st 10lb a bit heavy for distance / age when training
But at race pace for average BPM for each 1000mts was thus; (peak in brackets)
so should I be lying in Ipswich General on life support? the heat did get to me 7km-9km losing about 3 minutes .. finishing in 51 mins .. without cardiac arrest ..
elite is different to world class, i ran 39mins for 10k and just ran with a mate every week. this is just a town race and whethe rmale or female shoudlnt determine times. the fact of better times exists only like for like age
Afternoon all, looking foward today to running in the heat once more. Looking to up pace overall so looking at a 5k race coming up soon .. but it has a pace minimum for Elites of 22mins and to my horror if you have a bad race that at 22mins and not crossed finish line .. you will be "asked to retire and make way back to the start" .. ever heard of such a thing?
in fact the criteria is 20mins for men and 22 mins for women which is sexist too?
