Ran most of Soapstone course w/ Kevin and Bill. Ran southern part first, went around base rather than up killer hill, otherwise full course. Avg heartrate climbed up to 118 for the latter section, the peak HR of 186 was opening full up on the downhill after the quarry trail. time also includes a couple stops to regroup etc. Longest run of the year to date. Very tired at the end, but otherwise a nice run.
Playing w/ HR monitor for a few days now. Need to figure a few things out - todays 114 avg run felt about the same percieved effort as Friday's 135-140 run. Increase HR may be due to more caffiene during the workweek. Will take Monday off, then try the Friday workout with no caffiene.
Could also be time of day differences coupled with heart meds. Beta blocker supposedly decreases HR, but since I only take it once a day in the evening, perhaps its effects are minimal by mid-day following?
Lots to figure out...
