Ideally 75-80% of your maximum. Load of info on running can be found on sites like http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/ and http://www.therunningbug.co.uk.

And like Seedy said, use the search bar for blisters as there are loads of thread with long debates about how to deal with them.
That's incorrect. At 75% HR you're at your lactate threshold, you could probably keep going for 45 minutes at that level. Within a few minutes you'd want to be reaching 85%+, with the last minute sprint taking you to your Vo2Max.

Guys your actually nearly there there are 3 types...Moderate Zone which is 55-70% Max HR this zone represents a person starting out..Then theres The Fitness Zone this is 70-80% Max HR this is a level of intensity that is moderate enough to enable most people to exercise comfortably for long periods of time to utilise fat as a source of fuel..This is also the progression from the mod zone

Then there is The Performance (OBLA) Zone which is 80-90% Max HR this is recommended for the improvement of CV system for active and trained individuals, this assist in providing an endurance base for more intense aerobic exercise. The Onset Of Blood Lactate Accumulation Zone (OBLA) is the exercise intensity point at which a person shifts from aerobic to anaerobic energy production. Training at high percentages of max HR will help improve this zone enabling to train harder and for longer, But training at OBLA is stressful on the CV system and requires good fitness and is not suitable for a deconditioned client.

Finally there is The Proformance (Anaerobic) Zone this one is 90-100% Max HR and this is the highest level of training and is for very well trained person! working in this zone improves speed and pace and prepare and individual to race competitively

Subtle, Chris.

I know when I'm pounding out a 1.5miler, (at 8.08 I might add) I'm thinking, 'Gee, i hope my heartrate is in the appropriate category'

Just *text deleted* go for it. As hard as you can. Your heart isn't going to explode, and if it does, well... you'll be a legend.

8.08 thats good but when im knocking it out at 7.48 through a structured program trust me it works and you should be aiming to concentrate on these things

Yes, that isn't HR%, that is HR. You need to work out your Max HR to work out what HR% you're working at.

how long does the heartrate need to be in the 70-80% to increase fitness levels ? cause i really struggle to get my bps up. I get seriously out of breath before my heartbeat even starts getting over 120.
