10 recovery paced miles today, scheduled as a double so I'll probably do that. Nothing too exciting.<br><br>
Yesterday's thread was interesting/informative!<br><br>
Here's a possible <b>QOD</b>: Do you use a HM monitor? When do you use it? What kind of %'s do you aim for on certain runs?<br><br>
2) Most of the time--I don't monitor my HR during races, though. I like to look over that data once I'm done. If I watched my HR during my first couple of halves and my marathon, I would have slowed too much. I think I'm a bit of a freak and can race longer distances at a pretty high %. My max is around 190 (I hit 191 once in a 5k last year) and I can race 1/2's in the high 170's and my marathon was averaged at 174. 5k's are somewhere around 184, I think.<br><br>
3) Recoveries around 70-75%. I try to keep it around 70 unless it's really super hot out. General/Easy runs 75% to low 80's% depending on what I'm trying to accomplish that day. Speedwork, I don't look--too busy trying to run faster<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">, just looking at pace. The recovery runs are the only time I closley watch it during the entire run, I guess.
