Previous month or so had me running maf 13:30 ish, so i'm pinching myself. Totally expect to regress somewhat, as I've previously experienced, but enjoying the moment. Jimmy, Please tell me that the 'lobe' is just temporarily in the shop getting pierced, so it can sport some well deserved 14k. That bad boy is quite flattering.

          12.19 P.M. recovery 4 miles Ave pace: Somewhere close to 9 min/mi Ave HR: 140 Does anyone else experience this? If I run in the morning or at lunch I can knock out 7 min./mi below MAF on the TM. When I run in the evening my HR is high from the get go and I struggle to keep it down.
            Not a bad run today, all things considered. I took it easy as my left foot is still bothering me a bit after 5 miles or so. Today it felt pretty good though. Date: 12.20 8 miles 8:56 pace AHR:135 (MAF -9) I even managed to keep at or below 144 on a rather steep hill coming back in today. I wasn't setting any speed records though...I think the 75 year old lady walking her dog was keeping up with me. Tongue Speed work tomorrow if my foot holds up. 4 or 5x1600's. Mmmm.... Smile

              What?Oh, are you referring to my former Avatar? If, so, he is being fitted for a cochlear implant with his Rush Limbaugh coupon. On the subject of these Avatars, don't get attached, as I plan to use that little box as my major means of self-expression.

                I ran 7.5 mi today, which was possible mainly because I was off from work. avg HR 133, duration 80 min. Since I have come to runningahead I have started to enter my workouts, so I plan to do a 5 mi. trial with mile splits in about 4 weeks. Have been training LHR about 6+ weeks.
                  I've been running mostly low heart rate since October, 2007. I've seen some neat improvements, and I'm keeping it up for a while. 12/20/07: 6.8 Miles / 1:06:01 / 9:43 pace / 147 AHR Usually I try to stay below 156 but today I tried to stay below 151. I felt pretty good doing that.

                      What dietary changes did you make? I'm reading "The Maffetone Method" right now. I'm considering doing the "two week test" after the first of the year. I can't walk by a donut or cookie without eating it.

                        12/20/07 tm@1% incline 5.8 miles 11:32 pace max ave HR per mile : 129 bpm (MAF-5) radio: Jim Rome's Year In Review Show--very good Things have been nutso stressful the past two weeks, and it is showing in my paces. A little bit too much anaerobic shoveling the past week hasn't helped (and getting up way too early to do such). I'm tired. The beauty of this training is that the HRM will keep me at a pace that isn't stressing the body. If it's 11:32 today (when it was 10:47 on Monday) then so be it. Well, off to get some rest. BDAGS. The key is to NOT walk by donuts and cookies. Cool --Jimmy

                          6.2 miles today in overcast skies temp=39 , humidity 67% MAF =137 AHR = 131 Max = 144 (oops) got carried away for all of ten seconds on a nice downhill I felt like I was floating,oh well , pace =11:36 Good runs everone, Greg

                            5.5 today at an average pace of 9:14. Average HR = 139 for the run (MAF - 5, I use 70% karvonen formula as my ceiling = 143) 9:35, 127bpm 9:46, 141bpm (good heart rate control on the uphill) 8:54, 141bpm (slight downhill) 9:06, 142bpm 8:56, 144bpm 8:53, 146bpm Don't think I'm as strict as many but either the cold weather is holding down my HR and pushing up my pace or I'm showing improvement Wink Slight up tick in the last 1.5 miles was some steep hills.
                            I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it.

                              BDAGS, Ramping up my weekly mileage from about 20 to the low 30 range prompted me to look more closely at a number of factors that were affecting my performance as well as recovery. These very forums are great at presenting ideas that you wouldn't necessarily dwell on outside of training. One area of concern for me was my diet which had evolved over several years into a low fat, high carb type with smaller amounts of protein. All in all not a bad diet, but being 58 and increasing my physical activity seemed to warrent more protein. Some of the things you can read about muscle atrophy as you get older can spook people like me who read about a certain condition and automatically assume we have it. What's nice about closely tracking your progress is being able to tweak things and see if the change produces improvement. While it is hard to isolate any one item you can often see trends. At the end of the day if your still improving, then your doing a good job. LG1 Rollin'....Rolled Oats this am,...burp
