hi I just started reading Friel's Total hear rate Training book (on chapter5) and I have a few questions?
1. when performing the test you hit the lap button every 10 mins and it gives you your average hear rate for each lap, the one your most concerned with is the one a the 20 minute mark. the issue I have is my HR (polar f6) doesn't have a lap counter so will recording my HR at the intervals work or does the lap counter actually state the true average of each lap?
2. Friel stats a lot of people will go too hard and therefore not finish the test. any tips on choosing a pace you should be able to sustain?
I can currently do the spinervals aerobase 16.0 dvd (80 min dvd) with a heart rate mostly in the 148-152 range.....so would trying to sustain 160-165 be a good start? or is that being over zealous
obviously I want to get this number as accurate as possible
