Using LTHR for 10k training

Yeah I may had guestimated the MP for HAAD just so it kind of tied in. All others should be as they quoted

I wasn't suggesting mixing and matching, just that you have different 'experts' offering their own views on what to base their percentages on, and what those percentages should be.

You'll see from the variety of bpm results in my document that either one of them is right and the others wrong, or they're all 'near enough'.

Choose one and stick to it.

Slightly confused by all these mnethods I created this spreadsheet formula which takes account of MHR, WHR, HAAD, P&D etc. (go to Open and add your MHR and RHR and hit Enter)

Since this original post, I have come across Matt Fitzgerald's method of also using a percentage of your lactate threshold.

Mine aren't as close as yours, Gideon, which adds to my indecision on which to adopt

Read your explanation of the threashold runs a couple of times. You say lactate threashold is 71 - 75% MHR and aerobic threshold is slightly slower and equivalent to MP.

So are you suggesting MP is slower than 71 - 75% MHR ?

I'm pretty sure mine isn't

Hi all. Been lurking on this one.

One thing I'd like to know is which training intensity helps raise your lactate threshold?

Is it the easy aerobic runs, or the lactate threshold runs? or a combination of both?

From what I've read and understood, the most effective way to train is this: 80% should be easy pace 77%MHR and 20% moderate to hard 83 -88%MHR
