I have read so much on these news groups about trainning and
VO2 max and max heart rate that I am starting to get dizzy.
Just looking at my max heart rate (220-35=185) and the training
levels people talk about I think I must be over training.
I rarely exersize with my heart rate below 158-160. At this
heart rate I can workout every day without burning out. I run
or bike on alternate days 6 days a week. Run 4-6 miles and
bike 25 miles. 2 or 3 days a week I will really push the whole
way at a heart rate of 165-167 and pick it up the last 5 minutes
to a heart rate of 175-180. The day after I will do an easyday
which to me is a heart rate of 157-160. ( I have a heart monitor
by the way). Am I killing my self, doing to much? I have been
doing this schedule pretty much since last October. I don't
feel bad and my resting heart rate is still low, am I over
training, setting myself up for injury? I want to bike/run
faster and further, is this the wrong way to get there? Any
help or insight would REALLY be appreciated.
