My weekend was pretty relaxed and not very productive, but that's the way it goes. I did manage to get Clint hooked on World of Warcraft, and watched (parts of) all four NFL games. I sat my mother down in front of the TV with the 24 Season One DVDs and she's now passed where I've seen. Oh well; I can catch up. New episode tonight, too. W00t.
In other news:
- The HRM training regimen is still busting my balls. Reports from the front indicate that some folks find the first "couple hundred miles" difficult as they adjust. I have a 9-week training schedule I'm going to stick to. If I still hate it then, I'm chucking it, even if that's only 130 miles.
- Someone online suggested that I not worry about my recovery ceiling of 151 bpm, but instead run as slow as I can without breaking up my form. This will result in slower aerobic gains but will not be as frustrating. I may try that in a week or two if I'm still having problems.
- I will probably try to get a solid max HR reading tomorrow. Do 2 miles slow, then start to speed up. As I get to 3, do the hill interval thing to try and measure my max HR.
- A running store opened up in Westboro. May have to go there and get fitted for new shoes soon, if I want to have new shoes for the 10K in March.
