I turned the volume off on my [recently purchased] HRM. Why? Because in a 2-hour ride yesterday, I was only in my "own-zone" for 4 minutes and the thing just beeped away! How can I dial in my HRM w/o the use of the generic chart that determines my max, min and avg. zone? Will Sprints/intervals help me gain an accurate max? Should I run XX distance to make a determination?
I'm supposed to be at 177max. I spent my entire ride right around there. Yesterday was no different than any other ride in terms of speed, course etc. As a result I'm guessing my max should be around 190 or so. Understandably, naturally P@lar is not going to offer any "off chart" advise. Can anyone make a sound recomendation? It's an F-11 btw. Thanks, Mike
