BHF and a heart rate moniter

I thought I would try something at the NESBA Chili cook off track day on Sunday. I brought along my Forerunner 305 GPS with heart rate monitor. I did not want to destroy the thing, so I monitor the watch to the triple tree and had the heart rate monitor on the skin under the Under Amour shirt. I could feel the heart rate monitor when up against the gas tank every time.

Now to the results on the testing. Well I was expecting the heart rate to be a little higher both in a max and over all average. Let just say the numbers are lower than I thought and I scared myself at least a few times a session.

Well pedaling a road bike you are working your legs, moving against the elements and terrain, so you would expect the heart rate to be high. The heart rate while pedaling has an average range between 108-122 bpm (beats per minute) and a max heart rate 136-162 bpm. Now that is pedaling and working.
I would have guessed the heart rate to be having a higher overall average then it did while riding a motorcycle at speeds, just from the adrenaline factor alone. Well in the five sessions that I recorded, I had an average heart rate of just 106 and a maximum heart rate of 121. That is it 121 bpm and even scared myself at least a few times in the day? I guess I didn’t do a good job scaring myself and should have went for the track record then as I was riding in the 1:22 range most of the day, with a best of 1:20 something. I did have a max speed of a 146 with a range of 120 – 132 most likely going up the front straight.

Below is the date from today’s events. From the looks of the GPS, mapping it looks as if I was mowing some grass, but I can assure you that I never once made it off the pavement. As I am typing this summary, I have a heart rate of 52 bpm and I have not had a drink yet.

Anyone else have data to compare with and can share?

I guess I should bring my 405 next time I make it to the track. I use it when JetSkiing as well, and it gave me a ton of great info.

Thanks for sharing the data.

It is kind of neat, now if I could match it to the video I took that would be even better.

That's pretty interesting information. I am not a health nut, so I don't, know how to interpret most of it. In the summary, it shows 827 calories. I know that can't be right, can it? That would be 6616 for a full 8 session day.

The calories are not right, you are correct, as did not change the watch from biking. There is a motorcycle function in the watch I could have selected, but either way not sure if it would be correct calorie count.
