33 Year old Male, back on the bike 1 year after a 7 year period of doing NOTHING. 6'2" currently 215 give or take.
Max HR 198, lowest recorded resting RH 49-50
Max Heart rate has gone up to 198 from 192 a year ago. Last 2 hour ride, average HR was 162, but it wasnt that hard of a ride. I thought my lactate threshold was about 165 to 170. The first hard effort over 180 really hurts, but after that, Im fine @ 180. On the way home I was between 180 and 190 for 16 minutes, and I think I could ride @ 180 for an hour or so. Here's the graph, my speed sensor was loose, and giving me readings between 28 and 14, but near the end before the cool down, I was trading pulls with my partner @ 26-28mph. We had 3-4 mph head wind.
I hear a lot of people say my max should be less than 190, and my AT @ 159 or so, but to be honest, at 159, I can sit and converse, talk on the phone, do long division in my head etc.... 159 is barely an effort it seems.
Is there a way to figure my Anerobic Theshold? I read that I could do a 20 mile TT and use my average HR as a guide.
and ric, I don't even weight train!
