Using heart rate (HR) for triathlon training is nothing new, but most people do not know how to use it effectively in training. With technology advances, we can take our HR continuously using a chest strap sensor and a watch.
HR is a clear indicator of effort so it’s important that you work to your zones. Zones relate to a specific percentage of your max HR. Each of these zones has a particular training effect and you can therefore train more effectively.
To calculate your zones, complete a 30 minute running time trial at race pave. Take your average HR for the final 20 minutes and this is your lactate threshold heart rate that you can input into many online calculators. Now you know what range to stay in get the most out of every session.
