     The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

      Great!   Good for you.   When do you take it?   I am about the same, and take it first thing in the AM - before I get out of bed.  Woods Lady

        We are starting some training using a HR monitor.  I was told to take resting HR before I got out of bed for 5 straight days.  The funny thing is on a few of those days I woke up to the alarm with that frenzied reaction.  I think my heart rate shot up from the damn alarm. 


        I had these numbers.  55-46-48-56-50.  I entered 49 on the form. 

        In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion






          You may also want to measure your recovery heart rate, basically a measure of how quickly your HR drops after exercise. 




          I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

            Not suprising - looks like you had a significant mileage increase since the first of the year.  Good job!!

             I ran half my last race on my left foot!               I don't always roll a joint, but when I do, I roll my ankle


              I take my resting heart rate every morning before I get out of bed; when it is elevated I use it as a cue to take a rest day (I get a lot of exercise besides running).  Hangovers another cue.

                Mine is usually in the 40s when I wake up, and 55-60 while at the computer ... oddly though, today and yesterday I woke up with my resting hr at ~100.
