I don't like the truth sometimes.
I have no doubt that I'm putting out fewer watts than some of the guys I'm riding with. ...but that's not always a bad thing!

Having said that, I can stick it at 140-145ish bpm and hold it there for 20min.

Highest I've EVER seen has been 181. That was more'n a few years ago.

The point? HR is individual. What's going all-out for me HR-wise is barely ticking over for some other folks.

How old(ish) are you?

Like I said: I just don't wanna know! I'm skeered of what it'll say.

I saw that 181 in my late 20s. I'm 45 now. (on a side note: WhenTF did I get middle aged?! I still *feel* 20!)

My riding buddy is the only guy I know that's pinch flatted a tubular*. Managed to do it today. Naturally, he didn't bring his spare. No, he's not real bright.

*a 32c semi-slick no less!

I'm a decade ahead of you and I suspect you're in phenomenal shape compared to me.

But, I can't reconcile our HR differences - I can hold 140-145 for hours if not days. I assume your heart is simply that much more efficient than mine but I can't see why yours won't sustain 145 with ease.

Having said that, I'm about 85% certain that my hemoglobin and hematocrit is low.... 12.5/36 versus 15/45. That could be causing my "issue" of running a slightly higher HR than someone in my shape - a simple lack of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. Again, ...

I suppose it's time to go for an annual physical. I avoided it until after the 1200...didn't want him to tell me (or MrsK7) that it wasn't a good idea to ride it based on my blood count - or lack of as the case may be.

In my mid-30s when I was racing on the track lots my resting hr was appx 33 bpm when I wasn't overtrained. These days its only in the 40s.

I'll hop on the bike waiting for 'that guy' to get ready and I'm in the upper 50s.

IOW I just happen to have a low hr

HR????

Try cyclocross..... HAHA


This is the file from a CX race I did last winter. It was the first and only CX race I ever did, and it was so much fun...

I was on a buddies bike, but I threw the 705 in the jersey just to record HR. Pretty intense.

Your HR looks nice and smooth. Mine always looks like a saw. I stop working and my HR drops to zone 1 in less than 30sec. Takes me some real doing to keep my HR up. (and I can't figure out what to change to share a page outta my training 'log' at Garmin Connect. )

I can get to the top of a hill at 140bpm+ and by the bottom I'm in the 80s. Sometimes less depending on the hill.

Let's see if this worked:

In case you were wondering.

Speaking of heart rate monitors, I want one. I currently use a cheapo bike computer for cadence, speed and distance, and have strava running on my phone in my pocket to be able to look at when I'm done. I'd like to be able to track my heart rate, so would like something I can get on strava, but I also want to be able to watch it while riding. What's my options?
