Low HR Training

    P.S. Running at MAF feels real easy. Maffetone writes that it will feel easy, but some runners get so fast at MAF, that they end up having to use a lower HR than MAF for some training runs, because they find running at MAF uncomfortable. This is tied to his discussion of aerobic intervals in many of his books. I imagine he's talking about athletes like Mark Allen who ended up with 5:20 pace or better in MAF tests. I imagine it's relative though, and maybe my 5:20 would be a 7:20. I'll let you know if ever get there. It will be world news.
