That happens to me too. Learning how to run/walk before it becomes critical can help out. Some times I just can not seem run slow enough to lower the heartrate. More effective to run normally for a few minutes and then walk a bit.

Man that's crazy! I'm not used to the heat and it was only 87 here and I was feeling a little light headed when I didn't get a drink for 4 miles (2 out, 2 back). I adjusted my run and ran only 3/4 miles away from my car. I also had some ice in a cooler for my drinks and I popped some ice in my cap at every stop. That seemed to help. I'm not used to the heat at all yet (long cold/rainy spring). 100 would kill me at this point.

Dude, if you are training in that heat you need to be drinking every 1/2 mile or so. Other than that, slow & easy. A good time to focus on on stride, getting the most forward motion for the least effort. Your heart is already working double time pumping blood up to your skin to cool off.

I must have a weird heart-rate range.

I'm pretty sure my resting HR is around 60, and sitting here right now is....got to go find the strap first...about 75.

When I'm running it hovers darn near max almost all the time unless I'm walking. Talking 180-190 out of 200.

All this talk of targeting zone 2 etc. Can't do it. I mean I can, but I sure don't think a slow walk is gaining me anything. If I'm putting in any effort at all my HR is closer to max.

Heat will definitely cause a sustained spike though. Same heat can be less stressful on the bike from the cooling of the air moving past.

My heart rate will go up if I run with a large stride. Try shortening it. I use a metronome, started back months ago at 180 foot steps per minute and now doing 200 foot steps per minute. But if I lengthening my stride, per tick of the metronome, my heart rate will go up.


x2. Lean slightly forward in a straight line from your ankles, push back with your toes and strike directly under your weight (should not feel like you are catching yourself but are turning your fall into forward motion).

I'm very much the same way. My RHR is 55-60, but my run rate is 170-180 - always. Long run, short run, slow jog or intervals - it's always pegged. I can maintain separate zones for different cycling intensities, but my running HR is always at peak. Probably because I'm slugging around 6'2 220lbs instead of some of these skinny fellas, lol.

jdl2012---I live/train/race in Miami. The heat drives my heart rate up also but I don't stop just because of the numbers. If I feel good at 160bpm I'll keep pushing. There are many things one can do to increase performance in the heat.
1. I now train by running FIRST, then bike, then swim last each day. That way I am running when it is cooler and swimming when the day is the hottest.
2. Hydrate every 30min
3. Wear sun resistant clothing like vented run cap, Oakleys, white long sleeve 85/15 top, etc
Hope this helps
