Calculate your Estimated Heart Rate Zones by plugging in your info:
- Enter your resting Heart Rate
- Enter either your Maximum Heart Rate or Lactate Threshold (see below for details on estimating LT)
Estimating your Lactate Threshold
30 Minute Time Trial
- Go to a track (or very flat course) and take your heart rate monitor
- Warm up for 10 – 15 minutes, starting at a very light pace and increasing to a moderate pace. Stretch lightly if desired.
- Now, run your best 30 minute pace. Make sure to keep a consistent pace for the entire duration. That is,
don’t start off too fast and slow down. Keep the same pace the entire time. Record the entire 30 minutes with your
heart rate monitor, but press the “Lap” button after the first 10 minutes, letting the last 20 minutes go until the end.
Your average heart rate for the last 20 minutes will be a close estimate to your Lactate Threshold
