The Week That Was

Tuesday: 1.5hr. treadmill run (lower half zone 2)
Wednesday: 1.0hr. run (top zone 2)
Friday: 2.0hr. treadmill run (0.5hr. lower half zone 2; 1.5hr. top zone 2)
Saturday: 2.0hr. treadmill run (zone 1 with 0.5hr zone 2/zone 3 and other periods of varying incline)
Sunday: 1.6hr. treadmill run (0.5hr. zone 1; 0.5hr. lower half zone 2; 0.6hr. upper half zone 2)

Friday's run tells me that I may move my upper training heart rate up by 5bpm to 170, which will put it at mid-zone 3.

Saturday I started with a dry-run of the Hadd benchmark test (stopping at heart rate 170) and then dropped back to zone 1 running with some time of varying inclines and declines.

Sunday I was looking for 2.0hrs., with some hope for 2.25hrs. Instead I discovered that it is time to start consuming salt tablets. Didn't run myself to the point of cramping but I could feel my right calf muscle tightening (likely encouraged by Saturday's light hill simulations).

Overall, a good week. Seem to have worked my way close to consonance amongst my training week, aerobic running fitness, and soft tissues.

The coming week: recovery week and Hadd benchmark test.

You definitely generate precise workouts! Good for you for having a plan and working the plan.

Consonance = good news!

Will be interesting to hear the results of your next test.
