"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009
I have been doing MAF for 6 weeks, and tonight I decided to go out and do a Tempo run to test my speed, I went out with local running club, and ran quite a quick pace, and noticed my breathing was much easier than previously when I had ran at this pace. So it is working!!
Just over 7 m/mile pace for near to 4 miles which was about 6 on my PEL scale. Sub 4 10k should be achievavble this year.
Back to my MAF now, just hope all my efforts haven't been wasted because of this.

No they're not, but we don't like you anymore.
Hawt and sexy
I'm touching your pants.
I am with Jimmy. This type of behavior needs to stop. There is no speedwork here. This is the LHR forum. Conform or die.
sorry what did I say to provoke such a reaction?
Ps. Congrats on your progress Eddy. This stuff does work.
Btw, once you start race season, you will be running at higher heart rates. Your base will wither a bit, but you will race better. And once race season is over, you start low heart rate training again, but from a higher level.
So its a cycle, Make base at low heart rate, race at higher heart rates, start low heart rate training again but from a better pace than the first time.
