              Hey all.  No specific workouts today, just an observation:  I'm seeing stretches where I struggle to get up to my MAF.  This is a good thing.  Six weeks ago I struggled to stay under my MAF even just walking briskly.  Now on relatively flat and clear ground it is actually work to keep my hear rate up at my MAF.  Overall pacing has improved, but until the snow is gone I'm pretty much ignoring it.  As a sidebar I noticed that having to cross long stretches of glare ice makes my heart rate shoot through the roof even when I walk slow.  I think I just get nervous crossing the ice.

              Run!  Just Run!

                Looks like you're making good progress.

                My heart rate goes up when I'm glared at (by certain individuals). I understand.Cool

                Bad Ass

                  Hi, guys.  Took a week of vacation before the LA Marathon and actually did not run at all.  Did the LA Marathon and it was one of my slow marathons, but I had a good time.

                   

                  Ran 3 last night at 145HR (2 bpms higher than I wanted) but the pace was fine, so I'm recovering fine.

                   

                  Hope everybody is doing well.

                  Chasing the bus

                    Hey, all, I'm still here, and still (resumed?), running. Well done Demaris, on yet another 26.2!

                     

                    Two weeks ago, transitioning off night shift, was rough. It totally sapped my motivation. I finally got out the door tuesday (8 days ago), for a long run, which went great, and got me going again. Managed to finish last week with 26.8mi., and have a good start on this week.

                     

                    Ran MAFF test last night, sumary is, it looks like in the last two miles, which should be nearing my steady-state MAF pace, I'm 20-30 sec./mi. faster than the last test, so seeing progress finally makes me feel much better about the whole thing. I'm also starting to feel better with my mileage load, and wanting to work up more, so targeting 30 mi. this week, with a 12 mi. long run sched. for tomorrow (today is a travel day).

                     

                    Corrected test numbers, after warmup mile (I botched hitting lap button first mile long, corrected mistake second mile short);Pace mile 1 - 10:20, 2 - 10:54, 3 - 11:24, 4 - 11:37, 5 - 11:40.

                     

                    These numbers compare well with the MAFF from last month which were done on same model treamill in the same room with the same work schedule. The long run on 3/12 had me averaging 11:09 outside, with hills, sidestreets, ice patches and all, at the same avg. HR.

                     

                    Still not as fast as I want. Still not struggling to run this pace. I still want to see 10mm at MAF HR, and wont be happy until I do, but theres no point in pushing it, that doesn't work. Most importantly, I'm still running.

                      Wow. You are a bad ass, Desmaris. It's you and Ron now filling the long-gone Formationflier's and SteveP's shoes as resident AerobiDeities.

                      Seems like you're running a marathon every month! Awesome. Inspiring. Keep going! Cool

                          Bad Ass

                            Hi, guys.  I have not run all week since I've been sick with asthma.  Also, I had to DNS my ultra today because my kitty got sick last night.  So I've gotten a week of impromptu recovery.  I suspect my HR is probably super low by now.  Planning a short run tonight if all this stress lets me have some time for me.

                             

                            Hope everybody is doing well.

                              I ended up doing 6.50 total to and from the hospital at 144 HR.  It was 87F and my pace was super slow but did I mention it was 87F?

                                runnerclay, are you the one that posted a picture in the maniacs FB group?  If so, congrats and nice pic!

                                 

                                SRD for me today.  Between Trixie still in the hospital and my cough still ongoing I just want to let this week go and restart tomorrow.  I needed a recovery alright and I got it.
