    great Week 2, Run 3 3.29 mi 00:45 13:40 pace

    HRM worked today! One string of suggestions had to do with wearing looser shirt and shirt with some cotton in the mix. 100% synthetics can apparently mess with HRMs. I have too many 100% synth runn... read more

      interesting - I missed that one! But my stats have been pretty consistent. If I have any morsels of humidity, heat, or sun - up it goes. Looks like a good one!

    Week 2, Run 2 2.22 mi 00:30 13:33 pace

    Stupid HRM dropped out again so that it was reading in the 60s-80s BPM even though manually it was in the 120s to 140s. I've done some research and have a few things to try to correct it. Frus... read more

    What a difference a week makes. Last week my EE felt hard because I was sick and worn out from lack of sleep. My pace was about a min/mile faster today and my avg HR was a few BPMs lower too. Gorge... read more

      grrr HRM malfunctions :/

      I'm still looking for the consistent shuffle - the hills and heat mess with me. But I'm getting closer. Looks like you are in a good place, there!

      nicely done! Since I never did the "intro" part of the plan, I haven't ever done a 2x2. What I am finding on the accelerators that are happening at the end of the EE runs in week 7 (I think that's what week I'm in!) is that once I get to that truly blistering pace (around 8:00 a mile), it feels seriously effortless. As though getting to the speed is the hard part, but maintaining it is easy - due to the benefits of HRT. We shall see!!!

  13. RUN
    good EZ E 2.3 mi 00:30 13:02 pace

    Heart rate raced right up to 140 this morning so I spent most of this run shuffling along. Really humid so I have a feeling that was a factor.

    good So Much Soccer 3.56 mi 00:45 12:38 pace

    HR was really slow to increase this morning. Makes me wonder if it's the monitor. Anyway, it stayed around 75 bpm for the first mile, even when I pushed a 10 min/mile pace. Then it started to ... read more

    good HRT Monday 3.57 mi 00:45 12:36 pace

    I was really looking forward to getting out for an HRT EE run. I had an easier time staying in the 133-140 range than in previous runs. Maybe I'm getting more comfortable with the shuffle?

      you ARE in the shuffle zone! If I work at modulating my pace as the HR gets closer to 140, I'm able to keep running longer. I only ended up with 5 walks in nearly 5 miles today. Last Monday I had 8 walks and 36 seconds per mile slower avg pace. GO YOU!!!
