    good Trying to Stay in the Moment 5 mi 00:59 11:52 pace

    I wasn't feeling very motivated this morning and I almost skipped this run. But I pushed myself out of the lazy mode and headed on out. Solid run. I need to stop thinking about my pace so much... read more

      Oh I understand! When I am getting back on the speed bus, my fave workout is a mile warmup, then 10 sets of 1 minute hard, one minute barely moving and a mile cool down.

      Probably not what you want to hear, but maybe you need to leave the devices at home for a while. I've been doing this for a couple months, and I'm a much happier runner for it. It's good to track pace and all of that when you're in a training cycle and trying to hit a particular goal. But it's also good to take a break once in a while and just -run-

    good Three's Company 4.1 mi 00:46 11:05 pace

    Sunny and 38 degrees, not much wind, good conditions for a run. Chris and Tricia came to my house and we ran a loop. Fun to chat and run. Again, I felt like I was holding a tempo pace throughout bu... read more

    alright Either/Or 3.1 mi 00:37 12:00 pace

    Alternated 1/2 miles of EE with 1/2 miles of what felt like tempo effort. I started to have a freakout that I would never get my solid speed back but talked myself off the ledge by remembering that... read more

      Interesting that you chose to skip the HRM! I wish I had HR data from before HRT. I would love to see what the differences are between runs where you care about HR and ones where you don't. But I'm also a data nerd. Glad you and M got out there and I hope your hips unscramble themselves in short order.

      Am I a bad friend if I say you should ditch the HRT so I can actually run with you again? :-)

      WOOOOOO woo you!!!! I hope you are able to back off your XT so you have fresh legs. None of my EEs were faster than 13:10 before Nebo, and I averaged 9 something a mile for the first 9 miles before my lungs and gut blew up. You will be so pleasantly surprised!

      Wow, those are great EAT numbers for dead legs! I hope you're going to lay off the weight starting right about now?! I too had a very hard time getting my heart rate up high. You've also had quite a bit of LIFE going on, to be very fair. If I could have one running wish right now, it would be to see what my HR was in previous uncoached/unloved workouts and races. Proud of you for sticking with the plan!
