I forgot to mention that your HR lags, so using your HR to monitor anything above your lactate threshold kind of sucks. If you try the HRI method, you'll see what I'm saying.

Also, it takes about 2-3 min of continuous work for your heart rate to steady, so you should probably do a steady state warmup before using your heart rate to monitor your training.
