Wow! Here’s my report on the HR test. Went out today at lunchtime. Sunny. Temp had warmed up into upper teens. Overall nice day. I’d stated that jogging two miles and then blasting a hill was “easy.” Well, it was easy to set up and approach the workout.

After my jog I hit the jets on the hill, hoping to push strong for as much as 90 seconds just to be sure. Sputtered out at 75 seconds and hit a max HR of 168 bpm. Fun but challenging. It’s amazing how going balls-out for a friggin’ minute is such an uplifting change once in a while. I almost puked afterward, but luckily I hadn’t eaten breakfast today. Funny.

Now I have data. I know that 70% of 168 = 118 so that’s where a lot of my easy endurance and recovery training needs to be. Can’t wait to hear from you.
