That is the simple method and also the least painful one! Ramp test is the most accurate but max HR is also sport specific. When on the bike I did a couple of Ramp tests and saw a max of 174 but I run now (takes much less time!) and I have seen over 190 regularly with a max of 203. I am 54 so those running figures certainly don’t fit with the 220 minus age!
Curious to know what photo Scarlett and Ehhhmmily liked?
The contents of his lunchbox?
That will have to remain a mystery
I heard talk of a cheesy wotsit.
Actually enjoyed a run for the first time. Started out slow and found energy as I went along. Made a conscious effort to keep my heart rate at a moderate level so I could go longer and still have something left in the tank.
The only running I do is on my first break at work to avoid a parking fine. I’ve been running further before walking with still being able to breathe, but it’s only 10 or 15 mins. I never had much weight to carry but would always walk during cross country at school. Can imagine it feels good to get in a rhythm.
What did Scarlett and Ehhmly think ?
It’s fair to say they couldn’t give a fuck about what I run!
I would like to see more creative run route pictures on your map please.
Yawning baboon ?
Sorry @Pan I went for a boring shaped easy run at a slow steady pace.
Knee was absolutely fine which I’m very pleased about, but my calves have clearly forgotten the rigours of jogging and are tight as anything this evening - hot bath to try to loosen them off a bit before bed.
Right calf still like a thin elastic band but managed a brisk walk with no ill effects. Give it a few more days and a light jog and then hopefully slowly ramp up training again.
Any other issues and this half marathon thing can get to fuck.
You will do it in a fucking wheelchair!
Actually, that might be a better idea.
Eased back in with a half brisk walk, half very slow jog. Calf paranoia throughout. No after effects so far…
Careful for that dinosaur roaming Stourport
Gentle 3 mile run in the pissing rain Monday night
I’ve now managed 3 runs in 7 days without too many ill affects. Might try to squeeze in another run late on tonight or first thing in the morning.
