2012 Leadville heartrate data and wrap-up

August 14, 2012 at 7:37 pm 2 comments

Hear is my heartrate data from this year’s Leadville race (read my race report).

Heartrate summary – note the lack of any time at all in Zone 5

A few things to note about the heartrate data … first, there is no time at all in Zone 5! I think this is mainly because of the altitude because my legs were fresh. Also, I think I may have been a bit intimidated by the length of the race – thinking that I needed to be really conservative. Next year (hopefully), I’ll have at least a few minutes in Zone 5, and spend a lot more time in Zone 4 and less in Zone 3. I know I can crack the top 25 in this race!!!

Here is the annotated map showing where we made a wrong turn that ended up costing me an extra 1.9 miles (exactly) and 5’32″. Note that would have made my time 7hrs, 30minutes, and a couple seconds – which surely would have bumped me up a couple places. Note that the 1st and 2nd place female riders would have still probably beaten me. Sally Bigham was in my group that missed the turn whereas eventual winner Rebecca Rusch was farther back and did not miss the turn. No arrogance or offense intended, but wow those women are world class fast!

    Hi Brian,

      I use Polar Protrainer 5 to display my heartrate graphs. It comes with Polar heartrate monitors, but there is a free version called Polar Precision Performance that has some of the same functionality. Both can be downloaded here: http://www.polar.fi/en/support/downloads … I don’t use a Polar HRM any more so I wrote a converter to convert my .TCX files to the .HRM format that Polar expects here: http://www.topocreator.com/polar.php
