This is my first in a series about heart monitor training. Parker, Jr. It has only been a week, but I am already a believer! I will be summing up the main ideas, but I highly recommend picking up a copy as there is a ton of valuable information in there. The reason for this is pretty simple. On some days is easy to run a pace, other days its not. Heart rate is an extremely accurate indicator of effort. So running to a target effort ensures that your workouts are consistent and comparable.
I really allows your body to properly recover from the hard days. It also trains your body to be more efficient at burning fat unlimited rather than glycogen limited. It seems counter-intuitive, but its true. I ran 7 days this week and upped my mileage too, yet I feel better than when I was running only 5 days a week.
The reason for this is my old training was ALL hard days! It was extremely frustrating at first, but in just a short period of time things are starting to really make sense!

Heart Monitor Training for the Compleat Idiot
If the name John Parker sounds familiar to you, it should. Turns out that Mr. Parker is a pretty good coach too. Here are the key takeaways from my quick read of this great book. For multisport athletes, Parker suggests doing only ONE workout each day in ONE sport— three recovery workouts in each sport, three hard workouts, one day off per week, and each hard workout separated by an easy workout. You should also strictly rotate sports so no two consecutive days have the same sport. I like and dislike some of these ideas, as I will explain below.
