miCoach uses four personalized zones to help you gauge your efforts during your workouts. The zones are the building blocks for all workouts with miCoach. Each zone represents a level of effort: Blue is easy, Green is medium, Yellow is hard, Red is maximal.
My heart rate zones have slightly changed since the initial assessment run and are now
Red Zone 159-165 bpm
Yellow Zone 152-158 bpm
Green Zone 133-151 bpm
Blue Zone 117-132 bpm
I re did the assessment run and the new zones are slightly higher than before which is good news as it shows a slight improvement in my fitness levels
My week 1 schedule is as follows :-
30th Aug - 50 minute run - 5 min blue zone 40 min green zone and 5 min blue
1st Sep - 40 minute run - 5 min blue zone 30 min green zone and 5 min blue
3rd Sep - 40 minute run - 5 min blue zone 30 min green zone and 5 min blue
4th Sep - 70 minute run - 5 min blue zone 60 min green zone and 5 min blue
5th Sep - 30 minute run all blue zone
1st week is a total of 3hr 50 minutes of running. Mainly at a green zone pace
Green Zone 70-80% of your max heart rate
This is known as the aerobic threshold and is a comfortable paced run where you can run for long periods of time as a result your heart and lung capacity are all improved . You burn fats and carbohydrates at the same 50% rate.
I completed my 1st run this morning which was a 50 min run through the centre of Bury St Edmunds .
I passed the St Edmunds Tavern in Risbygate Street. This pub has had a complete refurbishment and change of name. It was formerly known as the Rising Sun and is one of the oldest public houses in Bury St Edmunds. According to the Old Inns and Beerhouses of Bury St Edmunds guide it appeared in a newspaper advertisement in 1727. However it is thought to be older than this and legend suggests that Oliver Cromwell once stayed here.
