If not, the article to read is here: http://philmaffetone.com/180-formula/

The bones of this are subtract your age from 180 and use this zone to train at in order to optimise:
- fat burning
- injury management
- endurance/stamina training

I gave it a try this afternoon on a 10k and found it a little slow, but an enjoyable pace!

I'm considering maintaining this for a few weeks to see what gives, but if anyone's tried this already what were the results?
Or, has anyone tried anything more effective?
