Running - how to train effectively.

Control your pace

In most cases, the glycogen in the body will gradually deplete after running for 20~40 minutes. Only then, will other type of stored energy — fat — will be burned at a higher rate.If you run too fast in too short a time, your body will easily tire out due to the lack of energy and the accumulation of lactic acid, resulting in shorter exercise time and thus reducing the effects of burning fat.A suitable pace can prolong your exercising time effectively and enhance aerobic capacity, stimulating the body to burn more of the stored fat.

Control your heart rate

Since the human body consumes energy at a fixed ratio, and carbohydrates are the most efficient source of energy besides fat and protein, with the highest conversion rate. This type of energy has a high conversion rate. The heart rate soars when the body works intensely and the body will increase carbohydrate consumption to meet the physiological needs. The fat consumption ratio will gradually optimize when the heart rate is at 60~70% of the maximum heart rate, and the body system will get used to burning fat to acquire energy.

Get sufficient rest

The body needs time to rest and recover after each run. The "Estimated Recovery Time" on a Garmin wearable device is a useful feature. Firstbeat performs comprehensive evaluation using a unique physiological model and personal data to remind you how much time your body requires for a full recovery after each training session before you can continue with your high-intensity training or compete in a race.
