Q. How do I test my heart rate?
If you already use a heart rate monitor for training, one way to know your maximal (or peak) heart rate is to base it on the highest HR number you've seen over the last 18 months. This will have usually occurred during a race or a group interval session.
Once you know your maximum heart rate, you can set yourself heart rate training zones using our myprocoach.net online training zone calculator.
