I noticed using the new heart rate monitor on my garmin that my heart rate for the 2 threshold sessions was 87% of max heart rate, which is perfect, and my long run moved from around 70-75% throughout the run. Now the recovery run, even though slow and dragged, following the day after a good threshold workout, ended up with an average heart rate of 80% of max. Now this tells me one of two things.....either I need to slow and shorten that day, or I have gotten to a place where I really should be running every other day. I don't want to do that, because I like the routine of running tuesday, thursday, friday, and sunday, and doing weight work monday, wednesday, and saturday. I thrive on routine
Tomorrow after the gym, I am going to smoke two pork tenderloins, and smoke 4 potatoes. On the bakers, I am gonna smoke them, cut them in half, spoon out the middle, and make twice baked potatoes with jalapenos, bacon, and cheddar cheese. As always, I will take pictures!
