I am 44 years old and tend to run a slightly higher heart rate than my peers when I cycle indoor / outdoor but I think within an acceptable range. It is more consistently high rather than huge spikes.
I have recently started running here and there (just a few) but my pace despite being slow (10km/hr) results in a 175 average night rate over 5-10km (my max HR is 192 I think) Is this simply because I am new to running? I have never really ran distances other than impact sport (rugby) and am quite heavy at 94kg / 185cm. I intend to run more frequently / consistently so hopefully that will result in this tracking down. At present it makes training with zones near impossible. As my marathon pace is the same as my 5k pace (almost!). Or perhaps I am expecting too much of my running due to my cycling capacity rather than starting at a jog / walk. Any guidance would be appreciated.
