I decided to do a recovery Maf-20(ie 100 but try tokeep it in the 90's) run this morning,all those 12 mimute/miles were killing me
My first mile(downhil) was 17:38min thought it was a bit slow,so decided to walk the rest,next mile 40 seconds quicker at 10 beats lower heart rate....what is going !!?
Help me out please some advice needed see stats below
A pleasure as always
Avg Moving Pace
Are you saying that you ran the first mile and walked the rest?
If so, it's not abnormal to start walking and be faster than running and your HR be the same or lower. Back when I was running/walking in the 15-17:00 range, I would be running at a particular HR and speed, then start walking at the same speed, and my HR would drop ten beats. You're not leaving the ground when you walk, unlike the glorious soaring and flying we do when running at 17:38 pace.
