Venue: Indian Medical Association, Pune

“Anyone can make an athlete tired, but not everyone can make that athlete faster.” 
― Roy Benson, Author of Heart Rate Training


Training with your heart rate is as easy as it is hard. Easy because no one knows your heart beats better than you, and hard because it takes patience to master its rate. Training by Heart Rate (HR) is not a new concept as it was some 30 odd years ago. This is not a session after which you should be comparing your heart rates.

Is there some real benefit in training by HR?  Even though if you wanted to work hard, how do you decide how hard? How do you know when to push and when not to? How to exploit an HR monitor when you are not exercising? What devices can you use for all these? How?
So many interesting questions! But the answers will be equally interesting.
The following topics will be covered during the talk:
– Running physiology and its correlation with heart rate
– Heart Rate Training Primer
– What is it
– Why is it useful
– When should you undertake it?
– How do you plan, monitor and execute workouts?
– Heart Rate Monitors
– Effectively using the generated HR data for Training, Racing and Recovery
– Integrating Heart Rate training in your training program


A big thank you to all who attended and Anand Hatwalne, Anand Takale and Aditya Kelkar of Running Potential for delivering yet another fantastic session.
