A sign of improvement

Don’t got much to add today, except that I got a good indication of improvement at my 30 min easy run.

All winter I’ve been running easy runs at HR around 130 to 140. My pace then have varied between 5:50-6:30. I never thought that would change. Yesterday I ran at 133, I think it was, and the average pace was 5:30. That was also a sign of progress, but I didn’t give much thought then. Today I had an average heart rate of 138 and that gave an average pace of 5:08!! For me that is quite a spectacular change compared to back only 2 weeks! (Have you also noticed that my cadence is a little higher)

If it’s not something special it at least gives me confidence about the coming season – and I sure can use that as I’m trying to better my 10k time with more than 2:47 min (from 39:47 to sub 37) 😉

No Garmin data today.. Sorry – their servers are down.

  1. Hi C .. something I need to mention, the 1hr runs replace the 30 minute easy runs, this was the major reason why you needed to learn to run the 1hr easy.

    So instead of the 30 minutes on your program they now become 1hr, I had hoped I had mentioned this

    this is all part of the progressive nature of the program
