With all the metrics you gather from syncing your watch to the app and then checking them all out, I have, over time of owning the new Vivoactive HR, become slightly obsessed with checking my heart rate. Probably too often but, as it’s on my wrist all the time, it’s an easy thing to do.
I mean, checking that all your efforts aren’t in vain isn’t such a bad thing is it?
So, I had a look at my HR today, checking the trend, and, I’ve gotta say all the effort I’m doing seems to be paying off. Happy bunny!
I’ve also been intrigued by fellow blogger SlowRunnerGirl‘s attempt at keeping to a maximum using a specific plan. So, I’m looking at keeping my HR down to a number whilst running. Why, well, body core temperature will be a big thing in the Sahara desert and I’ll have to keep an eye on it so, might as well start now.
Obviously the RHR is a good base of fitness and I’m happy with where it is just now.
I need to work on my VO2 max and Lactate Threshold too. Ah.. more hill running to come… YIPEE.
So… what do you guys track in terms of metrics? And why?
Keep, keeping on.
NB: Having looked at my week in Spain, where I was running in 36 degrees C and avg temp was HOT, my avg RHR did go up… all the way to 54 as shown in pic below.
