Running Journal 5/17/2010 (4.11 miles)

Monday, May 17, 2010

Today's stats:

Partly Cloudy 68 w/ wind NE 9 MPH
44% humidity
45 deg dewpoint

Time 46:00 (no intervals)
11:12 av pace
5.4 av MPH
417 cals burned
153 av bpm HR
180 max bpm HR

M1: 11:00 (160 bpm)
M2: 11:07 (154 bpm)
M3: 11:18 (145 bpm)
M4: 11:16 (155 bpm)
M5: 12:18 (153 bpm) 0.11 mi

I planned this outing as a quick, minimal gizwitchie run just to shake things up. I did NOT take my Gymboss so I did not use my intervals although I did walk a few times. As you can see my HR was higher and I was more uncomfortable at times...legs were fine but lungs were wondering what hit them. My objective was met.

My next run will be Wednesaday and I may make it another 4 miler with my 4/1 intervals to see how long it takes me. I suspect a little longer however it should be more comfortable. I am doing this because I needed to do something different and to me the comparison of the two runs will be interesting.

Until then...

    It's interesting to look at your HR curve on these runs compared to mine. I can tend to run a first mile that's up to 30 seconds faster than my second mile while my average HR is usually 10-15 beats lower than the second mile. Your first mile often seems to see your highest HRs.

    Your ticker seems to get up to speed a lot faster than mine. Then it drops as the miles go by. Mine climbs, even with slow pace decreases like yours. I was attributing it to the run/walk differences, but it's there on continuous runs as well. Interesting.

    Trying out different things is a great way to get to know how your body responds and to explore what works for you. Way to go!
