Brian has been hammering me on my running - which is good, since I don't think I ran more than 15 miles a week last season.
I track all of my runs with the Garmin 201 that I love - I wish I had bought the Forerunner 305 because I also have to wear my Polar 520 HRM. It's just a lot of computers to wear for running. It's been encouraging to see the numbers above - I'm running faster and longer (and if I had the HR data here, you'd see that I'm running at the same HR).
Here was yesterday's workout - it was fun although not easy to mentally prepare for at 5:30am:
AM: Run 75 –85 minutes build run…
The first 30 minutes will be a jog/run: very easy.
After 30 minute warm-up go into 3 by 12 minutes build from zone three to zone four. Follow each 12-minute build with a 3 minute sprinters jog. i.e. 10 minute mile pace.
The build efforts are to be done at a level that you could run for two hours at currently. Nothing to fast, just building the aerobic system.
Windows Live Write (which is what I use to write my posts) does a bad job at inserting images - but above you'll get the gist of the run's elevation.
If you click on the images below you'll see a bigger image and a better view of the route and elevation. The bump in the middle of the graph above is Belvedere. The flat parts from mile 2-4 and then 6-8.5 are the trail along the water and the route from downtown Tiburon to the hill (mile 1.5 and mile 9).
Can anyone blame me for moving here from Seattle? This week isn't much better, the this is the worst forecast I've seen in almost a year here - the weather in Seattle is the norm.
