Run # 84 More miles of pavement gone

Monday, March 26, 2012

Wow, I'm not that far from 100 runs!
Well, today it seemed to take longer to get the high heart rate alarm going, so either I am running slower or my body's capacity is improved. I don't know which. Of course once my heart rate is up around 177 it seems to stay there until I take a walk break. But is is pretty rock solid 168-177, and I do not feel labored breathing at all, and I can sustain the run without a lot of effort I think. So I really still don't know what to do with the data. If I listened to the Garmin I would only run for 3-4 minutes at a time, and then I would have to walk a couple minutes, and then if I started to run again the alarm would go off almost immediately again. So I am trying to use this as a tool to monitor how I feel, but not follow it absolutely. My mileage has decreased since getting it.

  


Run # 83 Forgotten blog part 2, Friday March 23 run

Monday, March 26, 2012

Today's run felt good. I think the walking breaks are probably helpful. I am trying to pay attention to how my body feels when my "heart rate too high" alarm goes off. My breathing is usually fine I think. Sometimes my legs feel tired. If everything feels tired and like my form might be off I give myself a walk break and let my heart rate come down a bit.

Seems like a good way to balance the machine's announcement that your heart is too high with how you're actually feeling.

Run # 82 Forgotten blog part 1-Wed March 21 run

Monday, March 26, 2012

Oops, I forgot to blog this run. Still playing with the Garmin. It thinks I should be dead about 10 minutes into every run. Apparently I am training a the top end of my heart rate. The thing is, apparently it takes very little to get this 43 year old woman's heart to the target. I don't feel breathless though, and I don't feel excessively tired or anything. I am putting more walking breaks back in to try and work with my heart rate. But I think if the maching had it's way I wouldn't run at all. And by the way, it isn't much of a run. I'm estimating it's a little over a 12 minute mile. I can walk a 15 minute mile all day. Still processing data on this new training tool. Anyway, another 2.9 miles down.

  


Run #81 Finally the rain is gone

Monday, March 19, 2012

Finally this string of spring storms has passed for the moment and this morning I got out for a run with my Garmin 210 buddy. It difinately wants me to slow down some, but I suspect it would have been saying that from the beginning. Anyway, I am scaling back a little with it and will see what happens. I definately come back with more energy left. Today I did 2.6 miles in 35 minutes.

Rain & Spring storms

Friday, March 16, 2012

It's been pouring since Monday with very little break. Yesterday afternoon we did get a break, and I got out for a 15 minute walk. Today it started raining as soon as I got up. Not a great exercise week, and it will continue through the weekend.
