I am in week 2 of my 30min Zone 2 running 4x a week and was wondering if I should be sticking to my heart rate monitor or using breathing through my nose as a cue.
I can run at a good pace through my nose but heart rate monitor says I am in Zone 3 (which apparently is an evil zone to be in).
Anyone have any advice? Stick to watch? Or go with nose breathing like Eric says in the book?
I always go with the nose breathing. When I slip into a higher zone (I also have an alert on my Suunto to warn me) and need to get my heart rate down while running, I'll breath through my nose and it slows down my effort. Works quite well!
