I am somewhat new to using a HR monitor and I know very little about using it to pace myself. I want to know, what would be the ideal HR to maintain over a long, flat century?
I am currently in training for the Tour de Tuscon, 109 miles, 500 feet of climbing.
I don't know if this helps, but here is my info:
I'm 6'6" and 190lbs
I usually put in 600-700 miles a month.
In the two weeks that I've had my HR monitor, the highet Ive gotten my HR is 195 bpm.
My resting HR is 70 bmp.
I can sustain 185 bmp for 6-7 minutes.
Also, what's the best way to determine your lactate threshold?
Any tips or advice is welcome. Thanks!
