Far out. You and Boltboi should have a pea heart competition.
Yeah that's scary. I can barely even get that high let alone average anywhere near it.
For a 10km running race I used to sit on about 161 - 163, if I discounted the first km which was lower. Long, slow 5-6min /km training runs were 120ish I think, anything mid-140s was trying, over 150 was hard work. On the bike... hah, I can remember several times not being able to get to 160 despite doing flat out 2min efforts, then when going immediately into 800m hard running would pop straight up. Mind you, brycec doesn't exactly have a history of cardiovascular training and subsequent adaptation. ;-)
ah yeah - I think youll find if I actually strung 3months of cardio together I would be better - that said I cant help it if I can push myself hard than you :P
166 isn't THAT high for running. Tooms - you're a freak. tRicky you're on a bike. I usually struggle to get my heart rate up there on a bike, but I'd average high 170's for a 10km race. My easy runs often pop over 150 in places, especially when I'm coming back from an injury / not very fit and can't convince myself to slow down because the run really isn't vey long.
Yeah but Fletch we're talking about 6:19/km here!!!
As a 'running' comparison, this morning's stair session I peaked at around 175bpm and averaged 157bpm so getting close.
Maybe I should wear the HRM at a Metro event for a flat out comparison. That's about a half hour's worth although probably twice as far.
HEY!! I'd love to get to 6:19/km.... *sigh*
I averaged 156 and about 6:19 the first time I did 6", and that was when I was fit. My HRM died a while back and I've got no motivation to replace it and have it tell me bad numbers.
brycec has jogged home from his parents Fletch... not exactly high intensity racing. Perhaps he'd go the full Dalto or full Saz and go 210 for a 2kTT?
