Trying a new formula

Saturday, May 11, 2013

This morning i tried a new combo - MAF training (
ormula.cfm) and Generation Ucan (

Why you may ask:
It is an excellent way of training aerobic - most people train too hard/fast. It is a much more efficient way for the heart to work. WARNING - if you do the MAF method - you will find you are much slower than your normal pace, but with time that resolve. I have great app where I can follow the heart beat and it will graph it.

Why generatiion ucan? I have been meaning to try it for a long time. In my book it has some physiological properties that fits what I want to accomplish with my fuel.

    Very interesting--I had not heard of him or his method. I've been using the Galloway's walk/run method for any run an hour or longer & for all of the half marathons, which probably keeps my heart rate lower than all-running, but I haven't tracked my heart rate consistently.

    Keep posting and let us know how it goes.

    I have done Maffetone style running twice now, both times to great benefit. Since I do run/walk anyway, I simply set an alarm on my Garmin and walked when it went off, then resumed running when it dropped below the threshold. My goal was to keep the heart rate as level as possible. I ran by time, rather than distance, which really taught my brain how to maintain an easy pace. That had real carry over benefits.

    I have a goal race on 1 June and then plan to spend the summer with Maffetone running.
