Target Heart Rate: Turn’s out it IS important!


I confess – I knew about target heart rate, and did not pay any attention to it for years. It seemed like something for athletes, and frankly, for men. (I don’t know how I got that idea, except that the only people I knew who paid any attention to it were men.) Now thanks to my excellent husband and bike guru friend, I’ve become a convert.  In the past month or so I’ve been monitoring my target heart rate, and made the amazing discovery that I’ve gotten more benefit from the past month’s exercise than I have from all the exercise I’ve done in the past several years. I’ll share more next week on the why’s and how’s, and share my personal experiment in “The Target Heart Rate Diaries.”
