Chris,
I too have dropped out of a marathon, so I think I know how you feel. No matter how rational a decision it was you still feel like a quitter. The next time out you will consign this memory to the bin.

ceal,
Good luck with your new career on the indoor track.

I checked in with my physio yesterday and I am glad to report she said that there was nothing serious a miss with my knee. Some of my lateral ligaments are inflamed and slightly swollen so lay off running for a week should see me back. Xtraining is ok so hit the gym today with 30 mins on the spinner, 5k row and then assorted weights and exercises.

I wore my HRM for the spin and row just to see how it compared with a run on the treadmill.

The red line is the spin and row, you can see where I switched activities.

The blue line is the run on the treadmill.

I can raise my HR on both the spinner and the rower but I cannot sustain it, my muscles give out very quickly. 

I was working fairly hard on all three machines with what seemed like a similar effort but as you can see with a very different impact on my HR.

Mick
