Training: 10-ish miles, 1h09m
Resting HR: 44
Sleep: 6h, 6/10
Legs: 6/10, hamstrings a bit sore
Post Run: 8/10, cruised the last mile faster, feeling good
Training: 6.2 miles or so, 42m
Sleep: 7h, 8/10
Legs: 7/10, no real complaints
Post Run: 7/10, it's just getting hot for evening runs
Trying out a new format here in an effort to transmit more data to Mystery Coach's secure location while keeping better track of how I'm feeling from day to day. Here's a bit of explanation, though it's probably unnecessary:
Training: Self-explanatory, just a bare-bones recap of the run with whatever data I've collected
Resting HR: Usually I go to the bathroom and head out to the couch and sit down to take this so I don't disturb the wife, so it's a bit higher than immediately after waking. Still, if I do it the same way I should be able to monitor any gradual changes (for better or worse) as the training progresses. If I don't take it, you won't see it (yesterday for instance).
Sleep: Hours followed by a ranking from 1 to 10 of how alert I feel upon waking. I was tired today after running last evening and probably not drinking enough afterwards.
Legs: Again a ranking of how the legs feel during the bulk of the run, again on a scale of 1 to 10
Post Run: An evaluation of how I feel during the first 30 minutes after the run. An 8-10 ranking is probably the "pleasantly tired" I'm looking for, and 5 or under probably means I'm pretty well stuffed.
Again, I'm pretty much just running easy for three weeks, and even taking a day off now and again. I'm trying for an hour or so each day with a two hour run once a week, and so far it's been going well.
