Bike to training session: 5.3k

- had an low battery warning on my 3 month old HRM and was messing around with that. no idea what I was planning to do as run with club. ended up doing something like an easy 1.5k warm-up then 8 x 400+ (ran in lane 3-4) @ 90 seconds then fairly easy 4k warm down. GPS has for 8k of running - 2.5k hard.

Bike back home: 5.7k

AM Run: 7.5k (last 1k barefoot)

PM Run: 7.8k (last 1.2k barefoot)

- in AM had trouble keeping my HR in MAP range - PM was fine for entire way. HRM returned warning so perhaps not that accurate - need to return it to shop tomorrow.
- haven't done things barefoot in a long time - felt real good

What's the MAP range for HR training?
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

Mittleman suggested 180 - age = MEP upper limit
MEP upper limit - 10 = MEP lower limit

MAP extends for 20 beats lower

I tried this and it didn't seem right. Then, I read that he suggested sliding the range up 10 beats for endurance athletes who train on a regular basis, providing some cues as to what each range should feel like.

The MAP for me is 122-142 - fairly easy on a cool day or when I am rested - harder in the warmer weather or if things aren't lined up - the plan is to do a lot of training in this zone and see if things get easier. In the past several weeks, it has been easier to remain in that range though.

Thanks! I'm going to look into Maffetone HR training. I tend to run too fast, too often and injure myself before I can build a real base. I have a huge reserve of endurance from cycling that lets me hammer the running effort before my joints and muscles are ready. I need to get on a system like Maffetone and just let it work for a year and see where I can be with a serious running base.

I need to find it but on another board was a detailed log of a guy who did this kind of training for a year or more and really benefitted from it. I think that my pace is decent but last weekend, in the cooldown portion of my run, I ended up running with a guy that has done 200+ 42ks and a ton of other things of the sort - he yelled at me after a few minutes asking why I thought that I needed to go so quickly.

AM Run: 7.3k

PM Run: 7.5k

- hrm is gone for a week or so - kept giving me low battery warnings. Perhaps it is pilot error but I refused to send in entier unit and am hoping it actually was the battery.

- tried a few things - new shoes, covered up full from the sun and real food (i.e. almonds and chia) and felt good - felt stomach turn over a few times around 24k though nothing came of it.

Thanks for that - the next several weeks should be interesting but things are feeling fairly good.

Intervals: 6x400
Easy: 1.7k

- my wife and son had been intending to come to my running club for a few weeks though finally made an effort this morning. Of course, that meant that we were late arriving and I didn't run to the location as usual. They were doing a contest - run 400 repeats without a watch and see who comes closest to their pace time. I ended up under-shooting repeatedly and ended up 9th though my son somehow ended up 3rd. A typhoon brushed by and everybody was ready to leave early - went home and didn't do that much for remainder of day.

- nothing - haven't taken a day off in a long time and felt a bit run down. My wife had a run in the AM (3rd in age division) and I didn't do much for remainder of day.
