getting tough

Posted: 31/01/2003 at 00:20
Benz has it occurred to you that you might be overdoing it a bit? You had a hard race last weekend and then did speed session on Monday and can't remember what else you've done this week. Combine all that running with sleep deprivation caused by your on-calls and you are bound to find it hard.

It is possible that if you give yourself a complete break from running for a few days you will return with renewed enthusiasm and things will look better.

Just a thought.

Nice work Barbara that WAS a good session. Did the presence of the rugby players help?

Did a gentle 7.5 miles this evening at a very slow pace, around 11m/m. Felt fine doing it but don't think I would have liked to have gone much faster, feeling the effects of yesterday's interval session maybe.

Probably wont have time to do anything tomorrow except maybe a quick swim so I should be well set for a tempo type run on Friday.

Treadmill versus Roads

I do one session a week (intervals) on the TM with incline set at 2. I'm usually OK for about 20 mins then it gets to be really hard work and the temptation to cut the session short increases. Only thing that keeps me going is knowing that it does seem to helping with my proper (outdoor) running.

Why are you running the FLM?

Cos I did it as a first timer last year and enjoyed it so much I had to come back and do it again!

Matt - someone mentioned an uphill finish in one of the other threads.

Resting pulse rate

Posted: 29/01/2003 at 11:47
Not an expert but I believe 48 is fine for a resting HR as taken either first thing in the morning or after 20 mins or so complete inactivity. I think 60-72 is the average quoted as 'normal' in the course of routine daily activity.

I've not measured mine recently but I would guess it's in the high 40 - low 50 range. Your resting heart rate may decrease further as you get fitter.

Shouldn't think so. I would think race packs will be sent out in the next week or so.

Yasso 800's

Thanks Achilles - I think I've already noticed an improvement, yesterday's 800s were definitely easier than the sessions I was trying at the end of last year.
