MEASURING PRACTICE EFFORT 7
This fifth issue of Volume 19 of the Coaching Science Abstracts reviews articles concerned with using ratings of perceived exertion, heart rates, and lactate to measure practice effort. Previous issues, namely Volume 1(5), Volume 4(5), Volume 4(6), Volume 7(5), Volume 7(6), Volume 10(5), Volume 10(6), Volume 13(5), Volume 13(6), and Volume 16(5) also dealt with these topics. The information from those sources, as well as that contained in this issue, will yield an extensive knowledge base of recent research in these three indices of exercise response.

RATING OF PERCEIVED EXERTION
PERCEIVED EXERTION IS SENSITIVE TO 5% CHANGES IN SWIMMING CRITICAL VELOCITY Castro, F., Franken, M., & Diefenthaeler, F. (2010). Perceived exertion at different percents of the critical velocity in front crawl. A paper presented at the XIth International Symposium for Biomechanics and Medicine in Swimming, Oslo, June 16–19, 2010.
A HAZARD SCORE BASED ON RATINGS OF PERCEIVED EXERTION INDICATES CHANGES IN RUNNING PERFORMANCE Malterer, K. R., Foster, C., de Konig, J. J., Bischel, S., Krause, F.
