Reply To: Easy run/heart rate


For the 5-10%, I was referring to the percentage of an easy workout that I would be running versus 90-95% I would be walking. But I think what you said was true also, if I’m walking/jogging my easy workouts in zone 3, probably only 5-10% of my total workout time would be in zone 2. I’ll redo my run test during my next short workout. Hopefully having a more accurate number will allow me to run longer and walk less in zone 2, and as my training continues these percentages will begin to swing in the other direction.

Thank you for the detailed feedback and pointing me towards the activity specific threshold values rather than the overall one. Hope to see some people at the run clinic!
