      One possibility is that your resting HR is still up following the 3+ hours run in the lakes At the weekend? Not really a hr expert or practitioner myself, solid enough after the weekend hills though!

      LOL!!!!!! Running fast is so hard, but running slow is equally hard & needs a lot of focus.
      Now you have the Rolls Royes of running shoes on I can imagine it's even harder 2 not kick it in2 the highest gear!!!!!

      Damn awesome run Paul!
      I also lowered the drop of my shoes last year & the guy who sold them, told them 2 be carefull & see how the body reacted.
      What I did was kinda dose it. Ran days with regular shoes, then days with the lower drop & slowely build it up. Worked great.
      Rock on warrior!

      135 hr is low and good over that distance. That said the annoying thing is that everyone's is different. Put it this way; If your Max HR is 190 then 135 is saying that yesterday was very easy and you are probably very fit. If your max HR is 160 then it was a hardish run. And is your max HR is 135 then you are in trouble lol.

      An ultrarunner on DM recommended Philip Maffetone's big book of endurance training and racing. It shows you how to figure out the optimum hr for training (most examples are based on and applicable to runners). It recommends running at a comfortable hr and after some time the pace starts to improve again. I found this to be true and I rarely get injured anymore. Thought it was well worth the purchase. Hope this is helpful.

      I have used one for the past year and if done properly, will make a huge difference in your running. The key is to find the proper HR zones (especially the Aerobic zone which is where you will live for a while). Do not use the preset zones or anything that talks about using just your age. Everyone's zones will vary because everyone is different. There are resources on line. If you have questions reach out to my coach, Kristie Cranford @ coachkristielv@yahoo.com. No selling just info
