    It seems to me there have been some issues about the rest time on day 2.

    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?
