My age is just about 60. I have been an endurance athlete for over 20 years. Using 180-60 and adding 5 more beats, I am trying to target a 115-125 heart rate. However, my normal easy “all day” runs without looking at my watch are about 115 bpm. If I increase my pace so that I approach 120 or even 125 bpm, my actual running pace would enter tempo pace. I have the opposite situation that I’ve read from most people using MAF. I need to speed up to hit my HR target, not slow down. Any advice?
