Hope your HRM has sorted itself now. Even if the numbers weren't as you wished, it was done with tired legs so there will be a gain to be had later.
Yes, weight bearing is good for bone density, but genes can be stronger than the exercises done. My mother had quite severe osteoporosis. Have a good time with your brother and family, he he still running? Good longer session from you yesterday.
Leave you running stuff at home, give your knee a rest and you can fly when you get home again, and work the breakfasts off!!
I wore my watch tighter today and the HRM worked perfectly. I have found a sports website that gives me splits. Not looked yet. But I have the final figures.
I stopped my watch in error. One cannot really stop it easily by mistake, but I was messing with it in the middle of a run. So results are in 2 tranches.
I ran 4 mins, walked 30 secs
2.2 miles ran in 19.15 mins, av pace 8.36 mm, av HR 131, MHR 145
.99 mile ran in 8.01 mins, av pace 8.04 mm, av HR 147, MHR 151
Recovery run home was 1.33 miles, total miles ran 4.56 miles. It was very easy to change the bleeps for my run walk to 4 mins run to 1 mins walk for the recovery section.
Chose a charity close to both of your hearts and that would make it easier for Angela. I am SURE people will be only too pleased to support you. I think over the past 3 years everybody, in general, is much more ready to put their hand in their pockets for charity. As you know with a Just giving or similar web page makes the collection of the money easy.
I hadn't thought about the researchers including master athletes who were incapacitated. I had ascertained that they were, perhaps, doing a study on both athletes and those who hadn't been athletes at all and to view the comparisons at various ages.
Thanks for the vote of confidence for Stewart, his original surgery was done by sticking the bits of retina back together, not lasered at all. That was some 9 yrs ago, it seems that the procedure has changed.
