Subject: Rule of thumb: Resting heart rate in the morning
Wow... first time posting in Tri Talk in a long time! (4+ years)

So have you heard the rule of thumb that, if your heart rate in the morning is 10 bpm higher than your normal resting level, it indicates you are overtrained and should take it easy for the day?

How many of you stick to that principle? I have a semi pro cycling friend who follows this religiously, however later in the day I always seem to have enough energy to give a good workout.

Any semi-expert opinions?

Thanks CoJ.... errr... I mean Tri talk!

Most of us have gone up and down in weight so often that we have lost count. What we are looking for is a steady loss of weight which often is not found.
