The good news about having a coach is that he tells me what to do. The not so good news is that I don’t always understand. Fortunately I have complete trust in him. We’re training with heart rate and, honestly, I’m not entirely clear on it. I understand that there are zones and each one does something different. I do not understand what they are…. But I’m getting there. I do know I train in zones that are too high which means I’m not properly training my body. Again, I get that. Sometimes this means I need to slow down and sometimes it means I have to push hard.
I think this is right:
107-124 Zone #1; 124-142 Zone #2; 142-160 Zone #3; 160-178 Zone #4
