>Cross Training>Cross-Training HR vs. Running HR
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
TRIing to beat the heat!
In running, particularly when you're just starting out, you'll get much more benefit out of running more, than running faster. It's not that quantity over quality -- in running, quantity is quality. You'll see this mantra repeated a lot on this site, but I'll repeat it again:
Running slower allows you to run more (w/o injury)
Running more will allow you to get faster.
Sub-1:42 for half marathon √ (1:41 at Disney, Jan '12)
Sub-22 for 5k √ (21:51 in Sept '12)
BQ for marathon- FAIL
De-slacking in progress
finished with 2.5 year couch sitting marathon.
EPIC FAIL- life got in the way this year- reset goal in progress.....
Those who try, fail! Those who do what it takes to succeed, succeed!!
Also, my slowest runs are at a 125-130 HR.
Why are you worried about HR anyway?
