Good afternoon.

What should my heart rate be if I'm 40 years old and my pace during long-running is about 4 min/km?

Good afternoon.

I don't think it's relevant to say "the heart rate should be". I can say that when I was in good shape I can run at a pace of 4:00 with a heart rate of 120 bpm.

Now I'm 40 years old and today my indices are far from 120 bpm mentioned above taking into consideration the fact that I finished my sports career 5 years ago. But I think my health and my fitness level is normal.

In short, everything depends on your fitness level. If your level allows you to run at a pace 4:00 it talks about your good shape. What your heart rate will be in this case that's another question. Of course, it will be better if the heart rate is lower but there is no any standard in this matter.

Good afternoon.

How to keep a heart rate at 120 bpm during running? Maybe there is a kind of proper breathing technique? My pace is 5-6 min per km. My heart rate while running is not below 160-175 beats per minute.

Exceeding Maximum Heart Rate

Is it possible to train exceeding your maximum heart rate? What excess is permissible and how long?

Adaptation Period to Low Heart Rate Training Loads

What period, in your opinion, is required for physiological adaptation to low heart rate training loads (slow running for building an adequate aerobic base) and whether or not faster sessions, strength exercises, bodyweight moves or gym exercises (physical fitness/ running-specific exercises) should be included during this period? Beginners and/or runners after a break/sickness can be used as an example.

Thank you!

What Should your Target Heart Rate Be while Running?

Good afternoon!

My question is not short but concerns a key factor for running. So, could you tell about a heart rate in detail? Cardiovascular system is in fact the key one when we speak about aerobic exercise.

1. What heart rate should I maintain during running, what things should I pay attention to and which factors affect the determination of “target heart rate”?

2. How can I control my heart rate? Which devices or methods are more reliable for heart rate measuring during training?

3. What is a dangerous heart rate that should not be exceeded?
