Training with a Heart Rate Monitor ( ' Zone Calculator ' at the bottom of text.)

 

Brief explanation of the training zones and then a calculator at the bottom to work out your HR % zones so you can input them into your HRM.

Calculating your Resting Heart Rate

 

Each morning as you wake up you should take your pulse.This should be averaged out over the week to find your resting heart rate.Avoid taking it with a full bladder,while ill or after a hard training session the previous day as all these can elevate the RHR.

 

Calculating your Training Zones

 

The most effective method of calculating your zones is to use the Karvonen equation as used in the calculator below. This takes account of your (RHR) and therefore your Working heart rate (WHR). The WHR is the difference between your MHR and your RHR. Each training zone is a percentage of your WHR, plus your RHR.

 

The Heart Rate Training Zones

 

Within each training zone subtle physiological effects take place to enhance your fitness. It is worth understanding the physiological benefits of training in each zone as described below.

 

The Energy Efficient or Recovery Zone - 60% to 70%

 

Much of the physiological benefits of heart rate training is involved in the bodies energy systems. One of these systems is responsible for the long term supply of energy to the working muscles. Fat is an abundant source of energy for the endurance athlete. It has been clearly demonstrated that training within this heart rate for long slow runs - especially overdistance - develops the bodies ability to feed the working muscles more efficiently. All easy recovery runs should be completed at a maximum of 70 %. The other major advantage to running in this zone is that while you are happily fat burning you may lose weight and you will be allowing your muscles to re-energise with glycogen, which has been expended during those faster paced work-outs. Underestimate this training zone at your peril. Often at the end of six weeks training within this zone it is possible to race unbelievably well ! Personal Best have been known.

 

The Aerobic Zone - 70% to 80%

 

It is during this zone that you will be training your cardiovascular system. The bodies ability to transport oxygen to, and carbon dioxide away from, the working muscles can be developed and improved. As you become fitter and stronger from training in this zone it will be possible to run some of your long weekend runs at up to 75%, so getting the benefits of some fat burning and improved aerobic capacity. 75% running often feels good. This zone is also ideal for developing local muscle strength.

 

The Anaerobic Zone - 80% to 90%

 

This the zone in which an enormous amount of benefit can be gained. Somewhere between 80 and 90% your individual anaerobic threshold is found - sometimes referred to the point of deflection. During these heart rates the amount of fat being utilised as the main source of energy is greatly reduced and glycogen stored in the muscle is predominantly used. One of the by-products of burning this glycogen, is the runners worst enemy, Lactic Acid. There is a point at which the body can no longer remove the lactic acid from the working muscles quickly enough. This happens at an individual heart rate for us all and is accompanied by a rapid rise in heart rate and a slowing of your running pace - sound familiar ? This is your anaerobic threshold or point of deflection (POD). Through the correct training it is possible to delay the POD by being able to increase your ability to deal with the lactic acid for a longer period of time or by pushing the POD higher. The fitter you are the nearer you will be racing to your POD. Running 5 minute miles does not mean you are running at your POD if the training you have been under-going is incorrect. Assuming you are fit you will be racing 10ks at just below your POD and 5ks right on it. Sometimes elite runners can hold a pace above the POD.

 

The Red Line Zone 90% to 100%

 

In this zone you will only be able run for short periods of time. It effectively trains your fast twitch muscle fibres and helps to develop speed. It is worth being aware that to develop this speed it is important to have first developed your ability to deal with lactic acid. This zone is reserved for interval running and race peaking. Only the very fit are able to train effectively within this zone. The value of each training zone should not be underestimated. 70 % often feels very slow at first but do not be put off - Keep at it ! To utilise the zones correctly it is important to phase your training. Each zone is a stepping zone to a peak. Miss out a step and the next becomes a jump.
