First numbers from my polar s120
Is there a good resource online for heart rate information? I know of a few books mentioned here, as well many great posts; but I'd rather have something all in one place. Eventually I'll buy one of those books.
The main questions I'm looking for is figuring out my resting heart rate and what is an average rate, and is jogging/cycling at 80% of my max a good place to train. I was thinking I would jog 20minutes 4 times a week, and I cycle to work for 1 hours 5 times a week. My max rate (age method) is 196.
I woke up this morning and had a heart rate of 60bpm. As I sit here typing its around 65 and seems to jump to 80-90 when I walk. I haven't gone cycling with it yet, however I went jogging (20mins) and found I naturally went at 80% of my max.
Thanks for any help!
