Heart Rate Zone
Been doing some research and my Heart Rate Zone (HRZ) to lose weight, for my statistics, should be between 121-138 for at least 30mins each day. This means that I'll have to add 10mins to my daily walk time as I can reach 121HB/min in the first 5mins then I'll need 5mins to cool out when I finish. Took the timepiece today and discovered that climbing hills puts me in the 138+Hb/min zone so I'll have to be careful I don't do this for more than about 5-7mins at a time at this early stage or I could stress my heart too much! Think I'll have to check out prices for a heart rate monitor to make it easier to keep track of.
