I must say:so-far-so-good with the heart rate training... Last week on the track revealed the ultimate truth that I have not lost too much speed. YAY for speed! I was able to do 8x400s around 1:20-25 seconds and 2x800s around 3:05.
Where did the speed come from you ask?
Heart rate training works I tell you! (Especially considering the last track workout I've done was probably late-late summer of last year....)
I've been properly managing and recording my heart rate through all my workouts! In fact, my Garmin and I have become new friends.
Except for when it does this....
How does your heart rate jump from 60 to 180 less than a minute into a run? It was super cold and I'm hoping it was an artifact. I was scared for a moment and thought maybe I was dying and should go home? Luckily, my heart rate returned to normal and I'm still here :)
Anyway hope everyone is having a great week! Saturday is my first race of 2010....just a 10 miler... fingers crossed for no snow and a fun race :)
