2 x 70

Tuesday...Thursday

Two 70 minute easy runs. Cool weather. Sunny skies. Some wind.

Legs feel good.

Hitting on all cylinders

Saturday: 45 minute run at 65-70% of max. I moved along nailing 8:30-9:00 minute mile pace. I'm not sure what was going on. I was hitting on all cylinders. Age graded, this is like running 6:30 pace or faster back in my 30's.

Sunday: very easy hilly run through Saratoga with D. I purposely kept my heart rate low.

65-70%

Both Tuesday and Thursday's runs were 60 minutes 65-70% affairs. Tom returned on Thursday. I burned him off in 45 minutes of 65% running. It wasn't intentional. Between beta blockers and two week walking vacations, he's just not in good shape to run.

It's getting warmer

Saturday: 30 minutes of easy running. 55 minute dog walk later on,

I noticed that it's beginning to warm up.

EVA

Tuesday: 70 minutes of fairly strong running. Focused on 350-50 EVA run-walk. Got into the low nines. Felt strong throughout. My heart rate was rarely above 135. Fastest recovery run in a while.

Thursday: 60 minutes of the same. Feeling pretty strong.

14:54

Jogged an easy 35 minutes Saturday followed by an hour walk with Lucy.

Sunday included a 32 minute easy warmup jog, 3000 meter AT run and an 18 minute slow warm down jog. The 3000 was faster than last time. 14:54 or 14 seconds quicker. I was a bit washed out...dieting I think. Trying to lose five pounds. That and a bit of a headwind going out made it more challenging.

At least I've breeched 15. It's progress.

ME = Really Really Slow

Danny and I dragged ass at the slowest pace possible for sixty minutes. My heart rate was super MAF. 110-115. I think this is a new record for low HR. Actually it felt really good. The weather was sunny and cool.
