Heart rate variability (HRV) can be an insight into how well you are training and recovering.
This is because the changes in length of space between heartbeats is a harbinger of changes in your physical and mental health.
And it is clear that this metric will inform the training of the future.
I’ll show you how you can use it today.
Welcome to the Planted Runner. I’m Coach Claire Bartholic and my mission is to help you improve your running, your mindset, and your life with science-backed training and plant-based nutrition.
On today’s show, we are going to explore how you measure and use heart rate variability to get the most out of your training and recovery.
What HRV is measuring and why
How and when to accurately track your HRV, and
How to interpret the data, because it’s not as simple as some might think
I’ll also share my personal opinions on whether you should even bother tracking yet another metric at all, and here’s a quick spoiler–it’s not for everyone.
