Hey Scott,

Sorry, i am just catching up on your log here.

I seen on your post 144, you said 130-150 bpm was low for you. That's very impressive! At 150 bpm, that is what, around 80-85% of your max heart rate? At 150 bpm, on a scale to 1-10, how do you feel cardio and breathing wise? Does this vary for you depending on the exercise? I have noticed at 130 bicycling feels totally different that 130 running for me because i am in much better bicycling shape.

But at 145-150 bpm range on my bike, my breathing starts to increase dramatically, although my max HR is a little lower than yours. So if you feel great at 150, what rate does it take to get you close to a 10 on 1-10 scale?

Dwayne - 130-150 is my range for cardiac development and I start breathing heavy around 145-150 so I don't maintain it during CVD work. Basically I start running until I hit 150 then walk until I hit 130 and repeat for the desired training duration. I usually end up avg around 138-142bpm. Thanks!
