>Running 101>how much is sufficient warm up time?
"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
This would defeat the object of my training.
Plus, making sure the contacts on your heart rate monitor strap are wet before starting - so it can get a good reading. This is supposedly key. My HR is all over the place for the first mile or two - once I work up a sweat it stabilizes. I've seen it suggested that using water or some kind of gel can keep it more stable from the start. I think there is a thread about it in the low HR group you may want to look for it.
This is where MAF and I always part ways.
