Utilizing Resting Heart Rate Metrics

In the category of training metrics, we might be drastically undervaluing Resting Heart Rate (RHR).

You likely use some form of software to track your training, but few of us have a visceral connection to that data. Tracking your RHR is a chance to get a peek as to how your body is handling your training and the transition to more volume (or whatever your next phase might be).

Join Coach Patrick from Endurance Nation for another weekly endurance podcast where he dives into the metric of resting heart rate and how you can use it to your advantage.

Key Talking Points include:

  • How to take your Resting Heart Rate
  • When to check it to see the effect of your training load
  • An anecdotal window of “what’s ok” as you track this metric
