Will my heart rate come down as I continue the programme?
I have read that the ideal heart rate when running is between 60% - 70% of your maximum heart rate (which is 220 minus your age).
That makes my ideal heart rate between 111 and 130. Right now I average at around 144-155 per run (in week four) and peak at around 181.
1. Will these numbers come down as I get fitter and more used to running for extended periods of time?
2. Is it a bad sign if they don't?
