I started out with just casual rests--well below 3 minutes, and just including the rest time in my total time.

Then I started doing more disciplined 2 minute rests, not including the time. (I'm just impatient about sitting out the whole 3 minutes).

It seems to me that heart rate should be an indicator of the optimal rest time.

I did day 3 wearing my heart rate strap with the following results:

L4D2

resting: 60

after first round: 130

after 2min rest: 70

after second round: 143

after 2min rest: 78

after third round: 144

after 2 min rest: 84

after fourth round: 145

after 2 min rest: 86

after fifth round: 152

after 2 min rest: 89

My max heart rate is probably about 172. Most of the rounds take me 1:11-1:15.

Any thoughts? What approach would you take here?
