      Something must be wrong, Vickie. Maybe you should see your doctor. Your workouts have not been like they used to be. You've got me worried.

      Including WU & CD it took me 2:43:40 to get those miles in. It took me so long, my husband called to see if I was okay.

      Oh, how I do hate scanning my HR readings for spikes and then wondering if they are a real problem or just some electronic malfunction. I have AF, but luckily it only kicked in when my HR was low eg in bed, and now I'm on pills I haven't had an incident for over 2 years. Not a good memory, though, so I sympathise with your problems.

      Very good distance, Vickie! And my HR monitor always goes bonkers on the TM. Yours is probably doing the same.

      Thanks Bob! Kind of frustrating when you "under run" while trying to keep an inflated HR down.
