"I can do 440 in 220" Half Fanatic #846 "Ninety percent of running is half mental"
For example, would MAF be influenced significantly by either a very high, or a very low (35) RHR? I determined my MAF by: 180-61+5=124. My runs so far have averaged 125-128 MAF & one at 120. (65-70% MHR 180 = 117-126.)
Another determination of MAF (by Hadd, Part VI) suggests it would be 132. That seems like a significant difference to me. I don't want to hurt any aerobic base training, so I'm thinking I should stick with the lowest recommended number to be "safe", right?
BTW, Mark Allen's formula recommends 129 MAF - sort of a high average of these three methods. Which MAF# do you think is best for me to use?
Thanks for any advice!
