30 minutes a day of moderate physical activity could change your health status. The best way to monitor and evaluate the quality of your training is the talk test. You simply use your ability to talk to gauge your effort. If you are able to talk during the run or training session, you are having a moderate physical activity which is enough for a healthy lifestyle.
The Talk Test teaches that you are in the stamina zone when you can speak in short sentences. Talk Test is a great way for runners new and old to connect with pace, heart rate and effort. In these conditions, it is easy for pace to lag but that doesn’t mean you are not getting in a good workout. The Talk Test removes the pressure to hit a pace and keeps your training dialled in so you get in your best workout no matter the conditions.
