Walk To Improve Your Run Times (Crazy!)

Running

I read this this morning and I was blown away.  A woman wanted to improve you 5K run time and she did it by walking – not running.  READ IT!!!

Note:

The formula for the aerobic heart rate range is 60-85%, but remember that we know the body burns fat best at 75%, so we’ll calculate all three.

220 minus your age, gives your heart rate maximum. Multiply by heart rate percentage (.6,.75 or .85) for range.

So, for a 35-year old woman, the formula would look like this:
at 60% maximum heart rate 220-35 * .60 = 111 per minute
at 75% maximum heart rate 220-35* .75 = 138.75 per minute
at 85% maximum heart rate 220-35* .85 = 157.25 per minute
