In this course, we get into the science behind training intensity and why monitoring training intensity is important. Many runners make the mistake of running most of their training sessions at too hard of an intensity leading to injury and burnout with limited fitness gains. We dive into how to use pace, RPE (rating of perceived exertion), and heart rate to monitor training intensity. We get into heart rate zones and teach you how to figure out your own heart rate zones. I can’t help but get a little into the weeds here because I love to talk about lactate and lactate threshold and it is important in defining your heart rate zones. Science-minded runners will love it! Lastly, we consider the 80/20 rule and why it is an effective rule of thumb for most endurance athletes. Learn how to get the most out of your precious training time!
