Low HR Training

"Expose Your Slow Twitchers" Daily Maffetone and/or Low-HR Training Reports (Read 23058 times)

    10.35 miles, 11:22 pace, 136 avg HR. Ran down into the canyon then back up then back down and back up again to the house. 633 feet of elevation gain. First half of the run was awesome, beautiful morning, pace was good, HR was averaging just over 130, felt great. Coming back I had to make a pit stop, pace slowed, sun came out, started chaffing, HR started climbing, etc. Still kept my overall avg HR at 136 and avg pace ended up at 11:22. Not terrible considering I just ran a 10 mile race Wednesday.

      6:45am, 72F, 89% humidity, 10.14miles at 125bmp.  rolling hills.  Wanted to go a few more miles but ran out of time.

       

      Took etabs before and during run  to help with hydration.  Used hand-held and 2 bottle in fuel belt.

        Yesterday evening - 3.1 miles, 10:48 pace, 135 avg HR.

         

        Quick run right at sunset. Storm coming in, windy and some light rain there at the end. 79 degrees, 60% humidity, DP 62, wind ENE at 23 mph.

         

        This morning - 6.08 miles, 10:53 pace, 136 avg HR.  (New Personal Best Pace for my 6 mile MAF route)

         

        Beautiful morning and sunrise! 70 degrees, 73% humidity, DP 60. North wind 9 mph. Felt great even with only 5 hours of sleep and running 3 miles last night.

         

        The 10:53 is my personal best for my 6 mile MAF route by a tiny bit, but the previous PB was on my 2nd MAF run ever back in May with a temperature of 58 degrees and DP of 48. 

         

        I haven't been keeping up with my fancy spreadsheet that computes an effort indicator and all that stuff, but I feel like I'm making progress even with cheating by throwing a race in there once a month.  When temperatures start to drop in the fall I might be able to get a 10:00 pace logged at MAF before it is all said and done.

          npaden - sounds like great progress to me, congrats.  I agree with you, once temps begin to drop you will see a well deserved drop in pace.  Out of curiosity how long are your monthly races and do you think your seeing a notable pace improvement as a result of the high effort days?

           

          6am - easy run, rolling terrain, temp dropped to 61F however humidity remains high 94%, 3.7miles @ 119bpm.  Although the humidity remains high it felt good to run in cooler temp.  No complaints.

                  Been getting in some miles on the road.  Ran in 100% humidity the other morning in San Antonio, WOW, I think I wouldn't have gotten as wet if it had been raining.

                   

                  Forgot my dongle for my iPhone heart rate monitor on my long run yesterday, but felt like I kept it pretty close to where it needed to be.  Might have been a couple beats higher than it should have been, but I bet it was pretty close.

                   

                  Tuesday morning - 4.1 miles at the house.  10:50 avg pace, 135 avg HR.

                   

                  Wednesday morning - San Antonio - 6.04 miles, 11:01 avg pace, 139 avg HR.  (Dew Point 73)

                   

                  Thursday evening - San Antonio - 4.93 miles, 10:45 avg pace, 142 avg HR.  (GPS messed up, I think it was shorter than that)

                   

                  Friday morning - San Antonio - 3.61 miles, 11:01 avg pace, 137 avg HR.  (100% humidity, Dew Point 75)

                   

                  Saturday morning - back home - 10.38 miles, 10:59 avg pace, no HRM.  51% humidity never felt so good!

                    Thanks.  I just run in our local running club race each month.  They are anywhere from 4 miles to a half marathon.  The ones I've been running this summer have been an 11 miler, a 10K and a 10 miler.

                     

                    I have no clue on whether the monthly races are helping or hurting.  Based on what I've read they should hurt my base training a little, but anectodally they seem to actually be helping a tiny bit.  I'm not one of those guys that crosses the finish line and falls down or starts puking or anything like that, I pretty much just run the race, finish, cool off some and then go on with my normal day.  My heart rate gets pretty close to max at the end, but I don't feel like I'm pushing myself to the limits if that makes any sense.

                     

                    I do plan on doing some speedwork every couple weeks once I get out of my base building phase at the end of the summer.  I have a couple 10K's this fall that I would like to try to get some decent times posted on.  If I can find a 5K to run this fall I want to break 24 minutes on one.  I do have a half marathon planned in November, but it is a pretty tough course and I haven't set a goal for it yet.  I already broke my goal of 2 hours on my first half, but this one is going to be much more difficult and if I can break 2 hours on it I'll be very happy.

                        that refreshing lemonade stand appearing on the horizon
                        turns out to be just another mirage.

                          I have been at this for about 2 weeks now and find I totally enjoy my running so much more.

                           

                          5.25 miles, avg HR 141 in 1:15.  It was still 90 degrees @ 10 pm but I forced myself out the door to the local track (no hills) and enjoyed the sweltering heat.  HR did climb up over MAF but just walked 100 meters and it came back down and picked it up again.  Pace a little better than when I started (17 min/mile) so the improvement is there, but the enjoyment it out of this world.
