Terrible run this morning. First 3 miles cruised at 8 15 pace, then over next 2 miles drifted right up to 9 00 min miles. Very humid and a bit of a cold so I'm hoping it was that what caused to slow down so drastically.
Well i think the 8.15 pace for 73% max heart rate is here to stay. Last couple of runs have been pretty consistent. Apart from tonight. Went off road and boy did i struggle on the hills, but think i wilL ccontinue on the aerobic side of things for now and not go mad on the fells again.
Hi all. Ive been back running for a couple of months now. Been lurking here but not posting as to tempt fate with the injury ravaged year i have had. Pace has been steadily dropping for a given heart rate. On thursday i went down the canal and did 5
Miles at 73% max hr. Boy was i suprised when it come out at 8.05 mm, really thought i had a big break through. Ran again Friday and today and the pace was back over 8.30 mm. Can a few degrees make that much difference? Or is it just a bedding in period for the new pace?
