    good 3 x 10 min Interval Day 7.42 mi 00:59 07:59 pace

    Love this weather! 42 degrees at the start made for a chilly warm up, but felt awesome once the intervals got underway. Splits were 7:24, 7:39, and 7:32 and my HR stayed right in line with the inte... read more

    Awesome run with Drew this morning. Pace felt comfortable and the conversation just flowed along with the miles. So nice to have the humidity down today!

  3. RUN
    good 3 x 15 min intervals 7.68 mi 01:02 08:05 pace

    Yet another interval day. Target was 7:15-7:45 with HR < 147. Actuals were 7:39 and 7:35 with average HRs of 143 and 152. Guess that 2nd interval was a little harder than I should have gone. Oop... read more

      Tricky, perhaps a different HRM would work? I had the same problem with my old Garmin monitor but then switched to the Garmin HRM-tri and don't have the issue any more. I think it was bugging me right where the buckle for the length adjustment ended up. Good excuse to buy more gear. :)

      Mine chafes in the center of the chest. I use a large waterproof bandaid, or a couple strips of medical tape and it usually prevents it. :)

    Easy run this morning to loosen up. Temps were down a bit but the humidity is still sky-high. Hope tomorrow is a little drier.

      We just drove by that last night & said how we need to do it! So it's fun? Great long run. Perfect weather for it!

      Oh, Tricky, it is so much fun! There are some minimum reach requirements (look online to see how far that is to make sure the kids can reach far enough). A really good time to go is on Sundays as they have cheaper pricing. If you decide to go, you need to schedule a time to climb, which you can do online. They other thing you need to do is fill out waivers for each climber, which you can also do online. Go have fun!

    good 3 x 10-min interval run 8.05 mi 01:05 08:02 pace

    Nice run w/ Drew this morning. Intervals were challenging without being too taxing (keep HR in the 140s). Target was b/w 7:30-7:45. Splits were 7:30, 7:42, and 7:39. Loving the 50-degree temp today!

      I bet, Kristin! Running a marathon in those temps when expecting a cooler day would be a real mental and physical challenge.

      I remember I thought about doing Via earlier this summer. So glad I didn't go that route. Would've been awful yesterday. So crazy the difference one day can make.
