Coach advice

"On this programme, it's important to adjust your pace to your heart rate, and that means you should monitor your heart rate. Here's how to take your pulse: During the session, place your hand over your carotid artery, under your chin. With your thumb and forefinger, feel for your heartbeat, and when you've found it, count the beats for 10 seconds, at rest, and multiply that by six (to calculate beats per minute). Rest for 1min and then take your pulse again: If your heartbeat has gone down by 60 beats, that means you recover very quickly. You can therefore increase the intensity of exercise. If that's not the case, then keep to your current pace."
