Yes. WAVA would be interesting.

Rich, three peaks was great fun. The weather was interesting with all the peaks in cloud. My friend is not so confident on the hills and we lost a bit of time after halfway when it all got a bit steep. Managed the 25miles and 4610ft in 9:55:22 so quite pleased really. I still can't walk properly yet.

I'm still really unsure of the benefit of running more than 30mins at HMP. Is that from a plan? Where have you seen it recommended?

It's all about lactate threshold though. Try some threshold runs. You'll be surprised at how long you can keep going at 87%. 92% is another 5% or 10bpm. That's a lot when you think about it. Just walking along the road you're probably already over 50%max.

Have you got a proper max? Maybe you're using HRR?

Yes. A bit of both. I just use the HR as a bit of a warning really. The difference isn't that marked though. Maybe an extra 10-15secs a mile in the last 3miles and 4-5BPM.

I don't see how it would work for a half. I do a 20minute warm up and then run at about 87% of max all the way. Whereas on a marathon in start to see a marked climb in HR after about two hours.

It's trying to take that into consideration.

For me it's suggesting running that last 6miles at HM effort but about 45seconds slower than my HM pace.

At the start it's suggesting I run about 30secs quicker than my LSR but at 4BPM slower. It's round the right ball park though.
