      Wow, Vickie! You did it -- 1 mile at single-digits -- 9:48! I think you can do 3 miles at less than 10:00 pace in a race. And very nice speed you showed in all your Intervals. Great workout! By the way, I have never gotten my HR up to 174. Highest ever in a workout was 172 (and that may have been just a temporary spike). Your max is HIGH!

      Good 5.5 miles, Vickie! Sometimes my HR readout will say crazy things. I just ignore it then. I don't think your HR was truly in the 160's in your 1st mile. Another thing I do: I don't record my HR when going uphill or downhill. I only record it on the flats. I'll let it go about 10 bpm higher than the target when going uphill.

      My HR monitor would spike in the early part of a run. Never could figure out why. Maybe due to you being so excited to be out there.

      Good that you're doing that, Vickie. The backside are the most important muscles for runners. The butt muscles are to be used more than anything else. And yes on the hips. Mine began getting sore on me a couple of years ago. Since then I have stretched them (and my groin) 3 times per day and I'm fine now.

      Can't say too much about the importance of stretching, especially as we "age". I think it's an often overlooked area, especially with guys - so, good job Bob!
