Training based on heart rate alerts
- View SourceI am just trying to get into running. I purchased a Forerunner 305 so
I could try to use my heartrate as an indicator for pace etc. I want
to get started by alternating walking and running.
Can anyone help me to understand how you can set up the unit so that
as I am running, if my heartrate reaches a certain level, it will beep
at me notifying me to walk. Once it gets to a lower level point, I'll
know to start running again. I'd like it to continue with this until
I am done with my session.
If it wasn't clear,
Start and run until heartrate reaches ~170 and the unit beeps at me
Walk until the unit drops to about 140 and the unit beeps at me
Run until 170, etc
I'd appreciate the help.

You just need to go through the set up
There is a section under "TRAINING" called "ALERTS"
Here you can set both SPEED/PACE alarts and heart rate zone alerts.
Then, when you run, make sure you START the stopwatch, it will then
apply these thresholds and you will hear a VERY CLEAR BLEEP when you
over / under exert.
Hope that helps
