  1. RUN
    Recovery run 5.34 mi 00:46 08:34 pace

    This is my 5th day in a row of running. I think this may be the longest running streak in at least a couple of years. No biking or swimming to deter me right now.

  2. RUN
    Lunch run 6.21 mi 00:51 08:11 pace

    I am tired of the 13 minute warm up for the first mile and just ran easy instead. My pace was right at a 9:00 mile, but my HR was in the 170s. As usually, it magically shot back down to normal af... read more

  3. RUN
    Greenway 9.12 mi 01:13 07:57 pace

    I think I'm just about done with trying to keep my heart rate down at the beginning of the run. I've been trying it for 4 weeks and it still tries to spike up unless I basically walk a m... read more

  4. RUN
    Lunch run 6.21 mi 00:54 08:43 pace

    I was short on time before an afternoon meeting, so I skipped the usual fight with heart rate for the first mile. The tightness in my right glute has come back. Hopefully a little rollering will ... read more

      Good work getting all those miles in during lunch

  5. RUN
    Recovery Run 5.06 mi 00:51 10:05 pace

    Pace was 9:38 when you take off the 12 minute warm up mile. Didn't about pace after my HR settled. Just ran what felt comfortable. My right ankle was pretty tight for most of the run. I&#x... read more

  6. RUN
    Long run 16.07 mi 02:21 08:47 pace

    This was not a good run. It felt like work the whole time. Legs felt done after the first couple of miles. Still, I trudged on and managed to keep a somewhat decent pace.

  7. RUN
    Lunch run 5.08 mi 00:46 09:05 pace

    I'm continuing my vacation from HR based pacing this week. I'll do better, next week. I promise. It was probably best with this run anyway. Heart rate was all over the place for the w... read more

  8. RUN
    After work run 10.08 mi 01:24 08:20 pace

    It was another crazy day at work and I had no chance to get away at lunch. My only option was to run after work, which meant that I would end my run in the dark. To minimize the amount of time I&... read more

  9. RUN
    Greenway 7.18 mi 00:59 08:15 pace

    I had an all day meeting, so I couldn't get out to run until late. I knew I'd be finishing after the sun went down so I skipped all the HR stuff and just ran a comfortable pace. Surpris... read more

  10. RUN
    Heart rate training sucks 6.02 mi 00:59 09:43 pace

    Today was just awful. It took a full 4 miles before my heart rate got into the normal range. I was run/walking the whole time. I know HR training can help, but days like today make it very hard ... read more

  11. RUN
    Warm up 1 mi 00:13:27 13:28 pace

    First mile fighting with HR. Unfortunately it only got marginally better after that.

  12. RUN
    Long Run 16.1 mi 02:15 08:23 pace

    Pace averaged 8:13 when you take out the first warm up mile. I think maybe my heart rate is a little more consistent earlier in the day. The only time I can run in the morning is on the weekends a... read more

  13. RUN
    Recovery 5.04 mi 00:48 09:31 pace

    This was just a recovery run, so I didn't bother separating out my warm up mile (12 minutes). Average pace was 8:59 for the other 4 miles.

  14. RUN
    Greenway 9.14 mi 01:13 08:01 pace

    Like clockwork, my heart rate settled into the right place after the first mile. I focused on staying in Zone 2 for most of the run, although pace was about 13 seconds slower than I have been aver... read more

  15. RUN
    Warm up 1 mi 00:14:33 14:32 pace

    My usual first mile battle with heart rate

      At least you have a heart rate? I've got nothing...

  16. RUN
    Greenway 6.2 mi 00:48 07:49 pace

    Focused on keeping HR in Zone 2. Glute feels a lot better today, but still a little sore.

  17. RUN
    Warm up 1 mi 00:14:43 14:40 pace

    I'm still having trouble getting my HR stable for the first mile. I can't stand what it does to my average pace, so I am splitting it out into a separate workout.

  18. RUN
    Recovery Run 7 mi 01:09 09:54 pace

    I have been ramping up the mileage over the last few weeks and I'm starting to feel it a little. I decided to take this run as slow as I needed to so that I felt good the whole time. My HR a... read more

  19. RUN
    Long run 16.06 mi 02:21 08:47 pace

    Maybe I am finally getting used to this HR thing. I didn't have a spike for the first mile like I normally do. In fact, I was surprised at how low it was. This was the same run as last week... read more
