        Best of luck tomorrow, Damaris!

         

        Took two days off to baby my hip, then did 4 miles yesterday at 15:37 pace, ave. HR 136, then 2 miles today in 14:55 pace, ave. HR 134. 

         

        Anyone else find it harder to keep HR down when it gets really cold? These two runs were at "feels like" temps of around 0  (-2F and 3F respectively), and I think may be among the coldest I've ever run.

         

        If it's not the cold, I'll look a little harder at why my HR is up. The two days off? A little short on sleep? Coming down with something?

           The stress from the hip injury is likely the cause of the up tick in the HR. Cooler temps HR goes down but then I have never run at -2F Smile.

           

          7 miles and 1 mile cool C/D. No HR monitor. Pace 12+.

          Run until the trail runs out.

          Chasing the bus

            Good luck Damaris!

             

            I too notice higher heart rates in the heat. Of course, anything higher than 60F is too hot to run in Joking. Running here at single digits for a month, I can't tell that it matters, and I tend to underdress, because I just don't like to sweat.

             

            Recovery run today, 3 mi., no breakfast/coffee, pace back up to 10:30. Really starting to believe caffeine before running has been stalling my progress. It doesn't seem to jack up the HR during the run, the first few I did before coffee, were same pace I'd been, but this week I'm suddenly faster. Oh well, so many variables, and only three outlier runs so far...I'm just gonna keep trying it and keep running.

             

            Have a good weekend all!

              The first mile or two is so difficult to keep my heart rate down. Even with an11-12 m/m it stays elevated. It frustrates me.

              mile three is a good part downhill and is flat until mile 8 where there is a pretty long hill. My right achilles has been hurting for the past week so walking up it was very much welcomed and i was able to keep my hr below 145. I had just adjusted how fast i walked it to stay around 143-45.

              Mile 11 is where i came home and spent a few minutes getting our youngest on a leash so we could run the next mile.

                I was going to run 15 today but my achilles was hurting too much to want to go farther.

                  Are you using a Garmin? It is pretty common for them to have false spikes early on. You might look at your graph to see if that's the case.

                    5.06 miles for me this evening.  10:03 avg pace, 140 avg HR. 

                     

                    Been having a hard time keeping my HR at MAF lately on my easy runs.  Keep running just a little too fast and bumping it up 3 or 4 beats higher than I should.

                       That's what i was reading. I'll have to wet the back part to make it work better right off the bat.

                          Wetting the strap seems to help to not get erratic readings for the most part.

                            Not my best day, MAF-wise. -9F ("feels like" -18), thought I dressed well enough but about 40 minutes in my legs were numb. I found out pretty quickly that running above 140 warmed me up (MAF is 136), so for the first few miles I'd so sort of intervals where I'd go up above 140 for a while to get the blood moving, then drop back down until I felt really cold again. My 4th mile I was cold enough to give up on MAF completely and run faster to keep warm, although I tried not to go any faster than necessary. Last half mile I knew I was only a mile from home (walked the last half mile as cool down, also not a great idea--only time my hands felt really cold), so I tried to slow back down to MAF.

                             

                            I'll dress better tomorrow!

                            Hey Damaris--how did the race go?

                              Still having a hard time getting back to MAF running.

                               

                              Yesterday 10.57 miles, 9:53 avg pace, 144 avg HR.  (MAF is 136).

                               

                              Some quality treadmill time (NOT) ahead of me this week.

                                Not sure if my treadmill speed is calibrated wrong, or the HRM on the treadmill registers low, but it seems like my treadmill workouts are too easy.
