Our expert says:
Is that the first time you've run with a heart rate monitor? The reaosn I ask is that you can only really find value in heart rate if you compare it to your own previous values. In other words, having a HR of 177 is pretty meaningless, because we're all different, and so you can't compare that way. You can look yourself though, and if it is higher than normal, then that is a sign that you're pushing hard, or getting sick, or overtraining. And if it comes down, then it's a sign you're getting fitter.
So keep a record and compare only to your past numbers.
As for fat loss, the more important variable is the time spent training. The longer the better, within reason of course, else you overdo it. But the intensity doesn't really affect it too much.
