Running Log Crusted Salt #214
Smarts a bit
my MAF speed was way lower than I expected! hmmmm maybe cycling 1000 miles and training with a low hr does not translate into higher aerobic capacity after all........ wasn't puffed in the least bit though.
just as an aside, is it 'on' topic to discuss Hadd here?
my Idea re: following Hadd's suggestions for training was to build the volume of miles per week using the 180 - age Maffetone methodology till I'm running a pretty consistent 40 or so miles a week with a hr that doesn't rise the longer I run.
Then increase the MAF HR by 5 and repeat until that levels off and add another 5 etc, obviously this has it's limits and will take quite a long time, but the thought behind it was that the longer you take to build up the first time the better your ultimate aerobic capacity will be (ref Hadd)
anyway this is all pipe dream stuff at the moment.... long way to go yet.
