Cadence is not directly related to speed. I can run on the spot at 180! 180 is of course a guide to best utilise muscle elasticity.

Yep... a bit like with height too

Tempo pace and advice on strides

Posted: 15/01/2016 at 15:30

Strides are about acceleration to top speed from zero to 70m whilst staying relaxed, then float down over next 30m.

I read a good formula for your tempo (or threshold) runs from Jeff Gaudette, which is to take your 10K pace and subtract seconds equivalent to the minutes off 60m.

For example if you run a 10K in 40mins that would give you 20seconds to add to your pace (60 mins-40mins =20). So, that would be 6.26 + 20 seconds. So that tempo pace should be around 6.46.

For a time of 36.20 the tempo pace should be around 6.15

I hope I explained that OK?

Muzza2. Bear in mind your max heart rate has nothing to do with your fitness. It is what it is, much like your height.

Trek. You need to do more testing. Just suppose your running HRM is 198. This would allow you to run at 158 bpm (on a flat) and still be around 80%

Not seen that web site before, Trek. Just entered a recent 10K and the calculation it comes up with for me across all other distances and training zones is spot on to what I normally train at and the race times I achieve.

On a separate note - I ran my usual run at usual pace etc today after a week off with the 'lurgy' and right from the start my BPM was up around 11 bpm. This technically showed I was running in a zone close to threshold! Maybe I haven't recovered enough or it was very humid. Fortunately, I know from doing this run a lot that this reading today is unusual. Had this been my first experience with heart rate I too would be baffled

I think you should try a running max test.

The only thing I can say is that HR does increase with even the slightest incline, increased heat, humidy, dupoint, fatigue, headwind etc.

I do know from my own experience that HR does force you to run slower than you think -partly because our perception is usually 'off' and we habitually run at a moderate intensity when we think it's easy intensity.

I can understand your pace at 70%, but 80% should be looking and feeling like proper running, albeit slow

How did you get 188 as your max?

131-150 is 70-80% your max. It should feel very slow and easy under 80%. But it does sound odd as you don't seem to be overweight (unless you're 2' 6"), you're young and fit.
I think they say the cross-over between walking and jogging is around 13m/m. You may as well power walk at 13.55.

Personally, I couldn't run at 70%. I could jog at 75% and run easy at 80%

As Rick says. without a true HR Max it's worthless info
