I thought you might find this spreadsheet useful/interesting.<br>
You can put your MaxHR and RHR to see different training/racing target zones.<br><a href="http://www.box.net/shared/dhc7tkor4g" target="_blank">www.box.net/shared/dhc7tkor4g</a><br><br>
It is interesting how much 'experts' opinions differ. I am a Pfitz's fan when it comes to training, but he really doesn't talk about where HR should fall at a given distance race. For those wear HRM during a half or full, where is your HR? I am aware HR tends to go higher during a race because of adrenaline and excitement. I wouldn't think I could run half marathon at well above the anaerobic threshold.

Those look about right to me, but everyone is different. It showed my long run HR right around 170, and today I ran 17 miles with an average HR of 171 (my max is around 215, if you're wondering). It says my HM race pace HR would be in the 180s at the beginning and the 190s at the end. I'm guessing that's where it will be, but I'll let you know in 2 weeks. It shows my 5K race pace with a HR in the 200s. I have run 5Ks with an average HR of 195, and I've done sprint tris with an average that high. I don't know if I could do a race with my HR that high. I guess it's possible. Maybe I'm not running hard enough in races! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> The easy runs, tempo runs, and intervals are all right where I am most of the time, I'd say. As I said, though, everyone is different. I have all my zones posted on my wall for the 3 disciplines so I can see where I am on different workouts.
