I am training for ironman distance triathlons. I have a lbp of 176 on the run, but find it is a huge effort to hold anything above 173. Does this mean I need to spend more time training near my lbp so that my speed gets faster as my body gets trained to handle the higher heart rate? I run anywhere between 3:10 and 3:20 for the marathon in an ironman. Should I be able to hold around my lbp for the marathon?

Good question , but I need more info. Please sent me you whole test including recovery linie and all the values to my e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
General info. LBP speed is metabolic O2 plus glucose as the main energy source. We see mainly in tri athletes ( often training too much ) that tehy have no time to refuel the liver over the span from 1 training to the next. This immediatly will limit the ability to go long on LBP and you may run out of this source after 30 - 40 minutes already. In fact we see in our camps that they often have no chance after 3 -4 days hard and long trainings to maintain the HR close to LBP at all. Polar has a nice way of tracking the HR " fatigue " HRV heart rate variability with the own fit test or the actual own zone test. You can teak 1. either resting heart rate in the morning ( after waking up ) followed by orthoststic heart rate in your sport position.
Take the differents HR O - HR R and keep track over a period of 1 - 2 month and you can develop an individual recovery info.
You add that info to a tracking of your Fit test from polar and the ownzone change and you have a pretty good info about cardio recovery.
HRV heart rate variability is the situation , where you check the regular heart beat ( 4 msec. ) acurate. As more relaxed and as more recovered your cardio system is as more "irregular " higher RLX factor you have. Ex. if you have 60 beats /min that does not mean you have every sec a beat.
you have them with differetn time interval. 0.93 / 1.05/1.02/0.91 and so on. As soon you start moving or stress the system , they will getting more regular and if you reach 4 msec accuracy you will be pretty steady. It is a nice testing for the athlete and if you combine HRV test from Polar with LBP test (lactate) you are getting as a hobby athlete more info in as many of the so called top athletes, and it is pretty easy.
So please come back Thanks
