Just when I fall in love with an Inov8 shoe, they stop making it.


I love the F-Lite 232. What happened?...there's a new F-Lite 192 -is that it's replacement?

What a difference the heat makes...or lack of it.

I started my heart rate training 4 weeks ago and nearly all my runs have been in hot humid weather, so my initial thoughts on my HR to pace were that they were well out or that I must be a right lard-arse. Anyway, did a nice aerobic 8 miles this morning and my pace for the same heart rate was nearly 50 seconds a mile faster.

Now, the HR to Pace relationship seems much more realistic.

Inov-8 past experiences welcome......

I think Inov8 have/are updating the upper matierial on some of their shoes for a more durable shoe. I know my new 245s and Flite 232s have this newer upper

I'm baffled by how I compare to my training partner. Our real MHR and resting HR are pretty much the same -his 171/46 and he's 50 years old. Mine is 170/42 and I'm 53.

In races over the last year or so, he's generally 1 minute quicker than me on a 10k and perhaps 2 minutes on a half marathon (although I have beaten him on occassions, but 8 out of 10 races he'd probably just beat me)-so we're not too far apart really.

When we run aerobically together at the same pace, he's usually around 10-12 bpm lower than me, which suggests he has a considerably better developed aerobic base, yet his times don't reflect this.

I was hoping he has a dodgy heart rate strap!

Can anyone shed some light?

Madbee. I did the Coastal run too. Bloody hell it was hot! 29 degrees apparently.

Everyone I know is suffering on their runs just now -even those who don't understand about heat, humidy and heart rate.

Aerobic base training alongside speed work?

Yeah, I read that in the book. I just thought you lot were doing more.

I shall be doing 1 per week for 9 weeks starting in a week or so -from 6 with 3 building to 9 with 6.

How often are you guys doing your LT runs? Once a week?

Interval or Tempo pace?

Posted: 14/07/2014 at 13:17

Tempo and interval running are both run anearobically, therefore both need to be above 80% with intervals being shorter but the faster of the two
