*Wear a heart rate monitor today if you have one. Your average heart rate should give you a pretty good indication of your top end of Zone 4 (Threshold). i.e. if its 171, then your Zone 4 is probably around 158-172 and this would be where you want to hit those intervals of 4-7min. When we say 85%, this is what we mean.
