Training: 10-ish miles, 1h10m, 4 mile evaluation in 6:15(148HR), 6:25(151), 6:28(151), 6:34(150). Recovery to 120 in :51, 72 degrees, 5:45 am.
Resting HR: 44
Sleep: 6h, 6/10
Legs: 8/10 Surprisingly good after stair climbing, box jumps and other weight nonsense at the gym yesterday
First go-around with what will probably become a semi-regular occurrence: Mystery Coach's 4 mile evaluation at an average 150HR.
72 degrees, 3 mile warm-up, then-
Mile 1: 6:15 (148HR)
Mile 2: 6:25 (151HR)
Mile 3: 6:28 (151HR)
Mile 4: 6:34 (150HR)
Ahhh, life at the bottom of the graph. I think the faster first mile was due to a cold start, as I wrestled with the lap functions on the heart rate monitor while standing still for a minute or two. It took at good 300 meters to get the heart rate up, and as a result I ran the first 400 at 1:30 or so before settling in.
The last mile at 6:34 was a little depressing, but Mystery Coach warned me to continue even if the paces slowed. The legs felt fine, as it was only the ego that ended up bruised today. I'm keeping a good attitude about it though, as the only way out from the bottom is up.
