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?

Cortisol also has a role to play in regaining  the fat.

Ecce you have made some brilliant gains there.   consistent miles is a big key so no injuries.   The way you are going you will smash a 4 hour marathon before you know it.


i still sort of follow this.    well for 3 runs a week I run at 73% of Max which is 8.25 min miles.   The rest of the time I am on the fells as looking at doing the bob graham next year, and it is impossible to keep the heart rate down.
