tried and trying. It is hard - keep HR low on hills, and high on flats / downhills. tricky...

the tried is leaving the bike aside and doing things like running and hiking.

Can't do it on my Mtb. When climbing as slow as I can my HR is about 10 bpm over my number (130). But when able I like riding at that number an effort you can ride at for a long time. It's going to be my approach for an upcoming Mtb marathon race, keep the HR low so I can finish stronger. You can't ride a 50 mile race like you would a 16 mile race.

Did it exclusively for 2 months with good results while doing base miles. continue with 2-3 rides per week at Maffetone pace and other 2-3 rides are either intervals or Saturday/Sunday group hammerfests.

I am having one of my best years ever, breaking my personal records left and right. The training has also been the easiest I have ever done too. Don't knock it until you have tried it (3 + months). Base mileage is not just for Dec/Jan/Feb.
