Agenda Duration: 40 minutes Speed-Distance-Heart Rate data How does Heart Rate training work and why use it Success Stories Beginner Q&A Enter for a chance to win!

When training you need to: Follow a training plan Gauge your intensity (push harder/back off) Track your improvements Analyze results Stay motivated Speed and Distance Measurements… Only 1 piece of the puzzle

Speed & DistanceHeart Rate Training Follow Coach Troy training plan X Gauge your intensityX Track fitness improvementX Analyze resultsXX Stay motivatedXX Execute Race Day Strategy XX Overview

Speed and Distance: March I ran 3 miles in 36 minutes April I ran 3 miles in 30 minutes Speed and Distance Measurements… Only 1 piece of the puzzle

Speed and Distance: March I ran 3 miles in 36 minutes April I ran 3 miles in 30 minutes Speed and Distance Measurements… Only 1 piece of the puzzle Shows an improvement in time, speed and distance.

Speed and Distance with Heart Rate training: March I ran 3 miles in 36 minutes at an average heart rate of 165. Thats my intensity zone 4. April I ran 3 miles in 30 minutes at an average heart rate of 145. Thats my intensity zone 3. Speed and Distance Measurements… Only 1 piece of the puzzle

April I ran 3 miles in 30 minutes at an average heart rate of 145. Thats my intensity zone 3. Speed and Distance Measurements… Only 1 piece of the puzzle Shows an improvement in time, speed and distance. Fitness improvement Intensity

Training Computer Calculates your Target Zone, a heart rate range that is based on a percentage of your Maximum Heart Rate and your age. Train in Target Zone Get fitter and your heart is able to pump more blood with every beat. Over Time Your heart doesnt have to beat as often to get the required oxygen to your muscles, which in turn decreases your resting and exercise heart rate. Result Muscles utilize oxygen better, meaning you can put more effort in and still maintain the same heart rate. Equals fitness improvement. How does heart rate show fitness improvement?

Calculates your Target Zone, a heart rate range that is based on a percentage of your Maximum Heart Rate and your age Training in each Target Zone has a different effect Training Computer Blue Zone 60-70% of maximum heart rate Recovery workouts, fat burning, endurance building Gray Zone 70-80% of maximum heart rate Improves cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and endurance Red Zone >80% of maximum heart rate Interval training and maximum speed development Why do I need to train with heart rate?

Target Zone training is incorporated into Coach Troy Jacobsons training plan Key words to follow: Aerobic: Blue Zone Tempo: Gray Zone Blue Zone 60-70% of maximum heart rate Recovery workouts, fat burning, endurance building Gray Zone 70-80% of maximum heart rate Improves cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and endurance Red Zone >80% of maximum heart rate Interval training and maximum speed development

Example: Wednesday Bike 45 minutes in your aerobic zone (60%-70% of maximum heart rate) then run for 20 minutes in your aerobic zone. Brick means do these two workouts consecutively. Blue Zone 60-70% of maximum heart rate Recovery workouts, fat burning, endurance building Gray Zone 70-80% of maximum heart rate Improves cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and endurance Red Zone >80% of maximum heart rate Interval training and maximum speed development

Heart Rate provides critical training information: Training intensity (takes the guess work out of training) Training guidance (dont train enough on hard effort days / too hard on recovery days) Avoid Overtraining Fitness Improvement (Fitness= Rest - Stress) Real time feedback Race Day guidance

Decision making that isn't possible without this information: -Helps you establish realistic finishing time goals -Match pace necessary to hit your time goals with heart rate -Provides a real time pacing tool that would otherwise only be possible with lap splits at mile markers -Helps to avoid the common mistake of going out too fast Heart Rate gives you Race Day decision making Example: In training you run 10 min/mile pace at heart rate of 160. During race you are on 10 minute pace, and heart rate is 170. You can make the decision to keep at that pace (time goal) or back down a bit (finishing goal) Provides a solid benchmark during training that can guide you during race day

Common Question: How do I stay in my zone? First establish a base of endurance mileage and heart rate efficiency during the base building phase Add walking or an easy spin in a low gear into workouts Tips: -On race day your heart rate may be higher (adrenaline) -During the summer, your heart rate may be 10-12 bpm higher -Hydrate -Elevated heart rate may be a sign of overtraining
