If you know your lactate threshold point in HR that is a lot more useful that max HR.
When I was tested my zones came out like 5-10bpm around threshold point = Level / zone 4.
Above that L5
Then you can work the other zones to suite yourself. I think most people intpret there lower zones slightly differently.

You aiming for Söders first team for 10MILA?
Maybe I shouldn't be helping Södertörns local rivals haha

No aims at all just now, depressing really but at least I am running.

Thanks mate, helpful information. It makes sense because I'm sure that at 10% blocks down from max HR that I could walk my way into zone 2. Not that I really know my max HR, let alone threshold point.
