Good Morning All!
I kind of fell off the face of the earth this past week but I haven't missed a single run!!:happy:
So, I have been trying to increase my pace lately and have noticed that I am in the 90-95% of my MHR. Although my friend who is a Cardiologist said that was fine since I was in great physical health that I might want to try and run in the 75-85% at just a slightly elevated pace for about a week and see what happens for stamina and then do speed bursts. So ok...I did that all week. I burnt more calories, acoording to my Polar HM over less time (30- 35 min) doing this then if I ran at 7.5 mph for 40 minutes.
AMAZING!! Since I am still trying to lose weight I am going to stick with this method but for races I am of course going to push myself into the 90%. Just thought I'd let you all know what's working for me.
Gonna go run now! But inside as it's already 85 degrees here in Ohio at 8:30 AM and MUGGY!!
Good luck everyone! Have a great Monday!
