Heart Rate Variability Stress detector

Heart Rate Variability is an important tool for monitoring your overall stress levels – from both running and life

Heart Rate Variability or HRV is a really useful tool that gives you an objective measure of the level of stress your body is dealing with. This is especially important to runners as research has shown the more stress we are experiencing the more likely it is we will get injured or ill; stopping us from being able to participate in the very sport that for so many of us helps to relieve stress.

The problem is, as busy, active women we have become desensitised to life stress. We take it all in our stride, declaring ‘I don’t feel stressed’ because a lengthy commute, getting the kids to school on time, dealing with argumentative colleagues, skipping lunch or staying late at the office to finish a presentation all seem normal, everyday occurrences.

About Women’s Running

In the September issue of Women’s Running, we want you to banish the guilt and claim your running for you! We look at some incredible locations where you can regroup, get some me-time, and run your socks off. Go on - you deserve it. If you’re looking to push your training to the next level, we’ve got the ultimate introduction to triathlon, and how a bit of swimming and cycling can benefit your running in so many ways. And now that it’s back to school time, we’ve also included a no-time 10K training plan, for those of us with more than one schedule to juggle. Plus, we speak to the incredible and inspirational Anna McNuff, who is currently mid-way through a 2,620-mile tour of Britain - on foot, and barefoot. As a Girlguiding ambassador, she’s on a mission to inspire girls everywhere to be brave and seek adventure.
