Week 2 is looking like Week 1

So far anyway.

Friday: 7.42 miles / 135 HR / ~8:06 pace / 60 mins

Saturday: 10.47 miles / 150 HR / ~7:10 pace / 75 mins

Sunday: 5.01 miles / 136 HR / ~8:59 pace / 45 mins

My Friday run was really good but after Saturday's run you can see today's 135HR effort was much, much slower than Friday's. On the other hand, the exact same thing happened last Sunday.

Keeping to an HR target range really reins in the pace on days needing it. If left to my own devices, I would have run a little faster as I felt ok and today's pace really required me to pay attention to keep everything slow.

The good news, my thoughts have been on moving to level 2 (of 3) of the plan when this week ends. The paces don't increase, just the time on the course. The increase is all in the lower HR ranges. Last week at this time, I was pretty certain I couldn't move up. We will keep the options open.

The legs still hurt but not too bad. Tuesday's scheduled massage should help.
