Heart Rate Training – Week 13
***NOTE: This is the first week of lowering my MAF threshold from 150 to 145. Also the first week of quitting BBG and running only. So the first week of running 4 days instead of 3. I am not writing in my walks, however I plan to walk any afternoon that I do not have errands to run (M-Th). Fridays and Sundays will be complete rest unless we do something as a family. I have tracked these in the past as “runs” but I won’t be doing that any more. My mileage may go down because of this (as recorded), but I want to differentiate between what should be a run and what was a scheduled walk from the beginning.
***ANOTHER NOTE: I missed my MAF test Saturday (family things happening and weather issues). It is possible I will not have another MAF test until February-ish. I will try to get one in as soon as I can, but a long run is easier if we have limited time on a Saturday.
And this is where I fell off. I’m not positive what week this was. It is possible I ran that Monday and it is possible I didn’t run at all that week. I haven’t run since.
Things have gotten crazy and I will update soon. I look forward to getting started again in January. I will re-number the weeks beginning at 1. I’m essentially starting over after an almost month long break. I’m also going to start with running 3 days and then move up to 4 after a while. I want to make sure I don’t wear out my legs by jumping in too fast, but I don’t really know how to know what is reasonable. There will be another post on this as well.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
