Mid 7

 A little longer yet this morning logging 15K at a mostly 5:27 pace.  HR was a little higher tonight creeping up to the high 130's.

I thought the HR would plateau but instead it just kept increasing.  Recovery was the same as yesterday minus the 5 min sit down.    I would like to take it past 20K to see if the HR continues to increase.    I also need to determine my MAX HR .. been years since I did that...use to be around 165-170 but I have a suspicion its high 150's now.   Regardless of the HR data its more or less just another way to entertain myself on the Treadmill.

Speaking of Treadmill I really didn't mind it over the past 7 days.  The new found love of the dreadmill is the Hoka One One's ...they take all of the hurt away.  No sore joints or feet issues.  I cant imagine not running indoors in these shoes!  

Speaking of indoors now I have an opportunity to take it outside this week not returning to work until Saturday.

Mid 6

12k at a mostly 5:27 pace this morning.  HR was about what I expected high 120's to low 130's.  11K in or about 60 min  I started to gear down 11.0-11.2 @ 10kmh,  11.2-11.4 @ 9kmh,  11.4-11.6 @ 8kmh then 11.6 to 12.0 @5.1 kmh.   At 12 K I sat down for 5 min.  Transition from running at 11kmh to walking at 5.1kmh between the 11 and 12k mark the HR droppped about 30 bpm.   Sitting down for 5 min it dropped less then 10 bpm.   I was expecting more around 20 bpm.

Mid 5

One more 7ker done at a mostly 5:27 pace.  HR was 6 BPM lower and the recovery was a wee bit better then yesterdays Run.   I attribute the difference to less stress before the Run...maybe!   There was more bad data until I start sweating and it makes a better connection!

Mid 4

7K the same as Mid 1,2 and 3!  Tonight the HR was about 6BPM higher the the rest of the week.  Suspect Caffeine OD may have been the culprit.

Mid 3

Another 2am 7K at a mostly 5:27 pace run this morning.   Remember the HRM this time ...

I am beginning to believe that the spike early on in the run may be true but then again maybe not!  Barely broke 130 tonight.    I was short free and a little cooler so I suspect that brough the HR down just a tad!

Mid 2

Forgot the HRM at home ... no toy to play with on the run.   Logged another 7k run at a a mostly 5:27 pace.   Talk about holy hot compared to the 5K.  Gym was a little humid and a wee bit warm so that could have something to do with it!

Mid #1 + HR Fun

More mids and more playing with the HRM.  Recently I read something about 7K being the magical minimum something to do about recovery and glycogen or something.  Anyhow the theme of the first 5 X 8 hours mids is 7K  so thats what I did this morning 7K @ moslty 5:27 pace.
