How do you work out your maximum heart rate? I've recently had two operations and when they wired me up before knocking me out I registered a heartbeat of 48 & 47 on the second Operation


The easiest option is to minus your age from 220; the result is your maximum heart rate.

There are other methods but I don't know much about them. Some details are on the link:

that will do, wish my heartbeat was 100, lol

The average Resting Heart rate is 72, anything lower than 50 and medically you are reasonably fit. Bjorn Borg had a RHR of 32

I have just started on the rowing machine (as I used to row when I was much younger - even rowed at Henly in 1979) doing the Olympic distance of 2km, I think I am annoying the more seasoned users of the gym because I take so long, I think my toddler could walk it quicker.

Went on the rowing machine for the first time in about 5 years yesterday. Did 2000m in 8:15, I used to do it in under 7:30 :(.

Progress is progress


I finally did 24mins 58secs today, maybe a week late ( I blame losing a week for Wembley) but I'm over the moon.

It's taken me 5 attempts to beat it.


Thanks for all the ideas and responses it really helped me cracking 25mins barrier.... Trainers was the big plus.


In time I'll be out on the road and see how much I can improve by.

Thanks again Paul.

Just thought I'd bring this post up to date and thank a few people


I've now done 5k in 20 mins and 54 secs and managed a 10k in 47mins 20 secs


Kettlebells really helped losing weight and toning until I hurt my arm, this encouraged me to run out on the road and become a better and stronger runner.


I've now signed up for the birchwood 10k as recommended by a poster and I've also enrolled in the Warrington half marathon.


I'm not bothered about the 10 k as I regular do sub 50 times, does anyone have any tips for half marathons??

Training plans, good foods, foods to avoid..... And do I need to stop drinking? If so when?

I've done the distance once in less than two hours but would really like a sub 1hr 50


Thanks in advance

Paul

I ran 5K today in one of the 'park run' events. 31 minutes but I did it non stop and it was the first time I have done anything like that. I can do better than this.

I found it pretty easy...but I have been running a bit by myself.
I will be doing it again but not every week because of work. It isnt really competitive, although there are some serious runners who take part, more of a social thing with all abilities taking part. Just Google parkrun.. there will probably be one in your area. Highly recommended.
I came 242 out of 350 or so.

Try searching the 'net for training plans, but the usual advice is to build up your distance gradually, be sensible with your diet (ie cut out too much junk food), and lay off the alcohol as much as you can. So many planned training runs are spoilt/cancelled because of too much drink the night before.

I've not done a half marathon for a few decades, and I doubt that I'll do another one, but one thing I do remember is that you have to start off at a pace that you know you can maintain. It is so easy to get swept up by the occasion and go too fast at the beginning, or, in my case, 'racing' others too early in the event.

Just go out with the intention of finishing it comfortably, enjoy it, and the time will take care of itself.

Hi Paul,

Well done with the progress.  As with the first few posters, targets for what your programme (i.e., have a proper work out three times a week) are better than performance goals, as you have direct control over them.  Also improvements in performance are inconsistent.  If you keep at it, you will be far fitter than otherwise.

For the half marathons, regular 10Ks are the best preparation.  However, that will give you the engine, but not the leg stamina.  You will be on your feet for about an hour and three quarter, so regular long walks will help prepare you for that.

Last year I used the micoach app from Adidas when training for Birchwood and the half marathon.  It comes up with runs where you have to change pace, which was crucial in improving my times, because I have always been a bit of a one pace plodder.  Nice to see this post, as I am finally starting my training for this years 10k and half marathon today, and need a bit of encouragement to get out there.

Good look with it Mike, I'm looking forward to the Birchwood 10K, it was a great suggestion by you last year..... I wasn't ready 12 months ago, but now I cant wait.

Would love to do a sub47

 

Maybe we can keep this thread alive to help each other over the next few months.

 

I'm doing a slow pace 10K tonight, hills, mixed terrain and some roads.

 

Good luck

 

Paul
