Out of curiousity:

What is your resting heart rate?

What time of day and how often do you check it?

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR?

Do you wear a HR monitor when running?

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace?

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status and

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training...

What is your resting heart rate? "normal" is 52

What time of day and how often do you check it? First thing in the morning, before getting out of bed. When feeling OK, rarely. When feeling niggles or tired a lot, as needed to determine if it is elevated.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR? Don't know, never run one.

Do you wear a HR monitor when running? Yes

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace? This a last cycle is all about LHR for most runs. Use it religiously

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training... Don't use the HR monitor for this, use the resting HR. If it is elevated by more than a few beats (as it has been recently) it is an indicator that I may need to back off.[/quote]

Out of curiousity:

What is your resting heart rate? About 46-48

What time of day and how often do you check it? Usually late afternoon, after I've been sitting on my butt all day at work. I check it occasionally.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR? 193

Do you wear a HR monitor when running? Used to all the time (I did low heart rate training).

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace? I ran by HR and adjusted pace to keep the HR steady.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status ... I have... by conducting regular MAF tests, tracking speed at my aerobic heart rate. If I was getting faster at the same HR (in repeatable conditions, like at a track), I was progressing; if I was slowing down, it was a sign of overtraining.

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training... My concern wouldn't be heart rate, but performance at that target heart rate.

What is your resting heart rate? 34

What time of day and how often do you check it? First thing in the morning when I wake-up.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR? N/A, I've only raced 1 5k that was back in 05 and I didn't wear a HR monitor then. During a training run I have had my HR up to 195

Do you wear a HR monitor when running? Sometimes, I gage my effort off of feel. I don't wear it in races because I really don't care about HR data that much, plus I race off effort rather then some number that may or may not be correct.

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace? No I let my feel gage how I run. I will use my Resting HR in the morning to have an idea on how I will approach that days run. If my resting HR is 5 beats or higher then normal I will change my run to a recovery run or even a day off.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status ... Again by looking at my morning resting HR I feel that helps keep me out of overtraining status.

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training... I run on feel and let my own feel of my body and effort decided when I need to back off during a run. Again as for before a run it is my morning resting HR and if it 5 beats or higher then my normal morning resting HR, then I will start thinking about changing my run or even taking a day off, it just depends.

What is your resting heart rate?
Technically, this is supposed to be first thing in the morning, so I don't know, as I've never checked then. But if I'm just sitting on the couch reading or watching TV, high 40s to low 50s.

What time of day and how often do you check it?
See above.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR?
Probably ~195-200. Haven't tested that in a long time.

Do you wear a HR monitor when running?
When I don't lose my strap, yes.

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace?
Pace for pace-important runs, HR for things like GA and tempo.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status and
Yep.

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training...
My HR plummets on runs/rides when I'm overreaching. It'll shoot up to normal values when I'm pushing it, but for steady easy efforts, it's 5-15bpm lower than normal.

Just by coincidence, I checked my resting heart rate before I got out of bed this morning, and it was 53. Its been lower than that in past years - but just by a few beats. I think its just that I'm a little out of shape and getting back into it.

I plan to run a 5k with the monitor on in the next month or so and try to get a better fix on my max, which I think is in the 180s somewhere.

I've never run by heartrate, so this is interesting.

What is your resting heart rate?

47 2 years ago. I may need to recheck it.

What time of day and how often do you check it?

Once every 2 years as I stated above.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR?

185

Do you wear a HR monitor when running?

occasionally.

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace?

no, just look at it after for fun.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status and

actually I use it to ensure I don't under-train. Heehee.

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training...

I don't know. if I see HR unusually high in an easy run in the future, guess I will post a question here to ask the HR experts. lol!

What is your resting heart rate?

Low as 36 avg 42.

What time of day and how often do you check it?

Morning right after I go to bathroom I go back in bed.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR?

Looking at my results of all 5k it seems 196 is about what I hit (makes me wonder maybe I ain't 200+ any longer)
But I heard you should add 3-5 points to it.

Do you wear a HR monitor when running?

Yes, don't leave home without it unless I do.


Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace?

My goal is to hit my paces accordingly especially on speed work. But I use my HR to stay in the zone or to see if I am working to hard or to easy. Example. Long run Sunday I wanted to Keep HR below 160 never going much more then 161-162 as I needed be ready for last 4 @MP. I ended up staying in the HR zone and still being at LSD pace of my liking and nailing the pace portion. If I climbed much higher then 160's I would have had difficulty making it harder then it should be.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status and

See above. Yes!

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training

I think resting HR is good judge anything over 8 points higher would concern me but I can really tell when running if my HR is elevated on recovery runs. Typically I tend to be in the 131-138 range. If I am much higher then I might be overtraining.

@John Kilpatrick wrote:Out of curiosity:

What is your resting heart rate? Probably 45 to 50. Have not checked it in a while. I base my training off of 53

What time of day and how often do you check it? As soon as I wake up in the morning. I have been so silly as to wear a heart rate monitor to bed at night and then take my avergae in the morning. Long time ago so I don't remember the results.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR? 196. I have seen as high as 202 back in 2005. I base my training off of 203 as a max heart rate.

Do you wear a HR monitor when running? Yes - every single run. Have for 10 years. I rarely look at my watch/HRM. Maybe three times a run. I tried to go sans HRM and Watch back in February and that lasted until June. ANYONE . . . Anyone here use SportsTracks and their training analysis tool?

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace? I use HR data now that Tim taught me how to set the alarms, bells and whistles. For the last four years I just turned on the HR monitor, ran by feel and looked at the data when I got home.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status Hopefully if you are using it correctly it will prevent you from over training or over reaching. But that may be a misconception I have.

What is the HR you would be concerned with to back down on training...Not sure I understand the question??? Are you talking a number while training? That would depend on the purpose and style of your workout

What I mean is do you look at your morning resting heart rate to see if it is elevated, look at HR while running to see if you can't get it elevated, etc.. In other words, are there any warning signs that you look for by HR that would make you think that you are reaching into "overtraining" status such that your performance in training and/or races will begin to suffer?

I think if I religiously took my resting HR every morning I could tell if I was over training. I usually look at my HR as I start to run which is usually somewhere b/w 75 and 90. Any higher than 90 on a regular basis I might try checking my resting HR. There is probably ABSOLUTELY no correlation b/w what my HR is at the start of the run and over training

Heart Rate Empty HR

Post  charles.moman on Sat Jul 02, 2011 11:46 am

I have a heart rate belt that came with my Garmin 305, but I have yet to use it.
I am a monthly and sometimes bi-weekly platelet donor, so my health stats with each donation are listed on my profile at the Indiana Blood Center.

Recently I was checking my cholesterol numbers and decided to look at my pulse at recent visits.
I started running in January - in October my resting heart rate was 76.
Now it normally is in the low 50s when I donate - I am quite sure being fit from all the running has made the difference.
I have gone on the chart from below average to athlete status - that makes me me feel great!
I always have had a decent blood pressure, but it has improved a lot too.
A win win. Plus I really enjoy being this fit at almost 60.

I might try the heart monitor sometime just for fun.

Doesn't it feel great to be fit!?!? You should try out the Garmin HR monitor and see how it compares to when you donate. It sould be interesting to see how accurate it is.

What is your resting heart rate? 43-44

What time of day and how often do you check it? First thing in the morning - every couple of weeks. I've been tracking it lately a bit more due to some female issues.

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR? 198 was the highest I ever saw on my HRM. I've seen it in the 190s during track workouts, and I had it measured 8 yrs ago at 204.

Do you wear a HR monitor when running? Yes, most of the time.

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace? Both. The reason why I have been tracking is to see what correlations I can make to better adapt my training. This is a woman thing, but I'm hoping to come up with some data to assist others since I can really find nothing on line.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status and See above

What is your resting heart rate?
35 bpm

What time of day and how often do you check it?
I check it by sitting on the couch at the Gym for 10 minutes (in the evening ~7PM).

What is your end of a 5K butt busting HR?
175 bpm at the end of a 5K (192 bpm at the end of a mile race)

Do you wear a HR monitor when running?
75% of the time

Do you use your HR data to modify your runs or do you use running pace?
No, I run by feel or pace depending on the purpose of the run. I generally run progressive pace.

Do you use it to determine if you are reaching into overtraining status?
My HR does not provide this information. HR does tell me about dehydration and heat. sunny
