Just managed to post in the wrong thread.  Not sure how that happened but ...

Just back from a 10k walk.  Got rained on about half way round but almost dry again now.

I set my MAF hr at zone 3 (well, not quite at zone 3 but close) and not zone 2.  It seems to be working well and the ToJ likes it.  That's the kiss of death now I guess ...

Did 6k. It was fine but felt like hard work for some reason.

Not sure if physiological or psychological.

Got out for 7k this morning before work which was great. 

Beardy, I think MAF runs need to be in the 60-90 minute range probably to see a major benefit but all work around this level is useful.

Thanks Chris.

I’ve just plotted an extended rout for Thursday which should take about an hour.

Just back from my weekly intervals session.  Glorious morning and a great way to start the day.

My low hr maff-esque run is tomorrow Beardy and I do an hour at it once a week.   What surprises me is how I cover only about 1km less in an hour than when on a regular steady session.  I'll be leaving the house at about 05:45 and starting the session before 06:00 if you'd like to join me.

Almost crowded in the Park this morning. I saw TWO other runners!
Lovely morning for it, cool enough. but nice and sunny.
It is not like that now.
