Pace Dictated by Heart Rate

Ran a recovery run today, with the goal of keeping my heart rate in the mid-130s, and not worrying about the pace. It went well. Followed it up with a set of strides.

I planned my rest day for tomorrow to make it easier to vote. This week will incorporate more of the Pfitzinger plan, and next week even more. After that, I hope to be at cruising altitude in terms of following the plan in full (for the most part).

I put a poll up in the upper right part of this blog, just for fun. I'm hoping to have a new one each month, so long as I can come up with something that I deem worthy enough. Check it out, why don't you?

Ran 5.0 miles @ 8:45/mile/pace, followed with 10 X 100M strides.
AHR/MHR - 136/150 (excludes strides)
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Upper 40s, overcast.
Shorts, long sleeved shirt.

Ran short run in 55F weather here in Ohio and I wore shorts... Cool poll. :)

it was 2C but the cold wind made me put the pants on! I'm curious how you handle the Pfitz program and think you'll like it.

OK...how can 31% chuck their shorts at 40-45 degrees? That is just crazy! 30 degrees makes much more sense.
