I’m not sure I’m getting the idea of the HR monitor. At the moment I’m like a kid with a new toy which does lots of things but uses it the wrong way. Today at the beach I wanted to see how high I could make it go and then see how quickly I could bring it back down again. This may be called interval something or others (thanks SRG) but I shall call it arrghhghgh ooooohhhh.
It’s probably not doing me much good but I like it and thats what counts to me. I don’t do it by increasing pace but instead by running harder on technical ground. I figure although I am increasing my chances of decking it I’m less likely to pull any muscles. Don’t worry I’ll get bored of looking at the watch again soon.
It’s easy to get it back to normal by fossil hunting too! Found this today in a shale bed.
Although it was wet and cold I loved being out alone on the beach for another 7 miles.

Sounds like you got it right! I like the game of ‘how slow I can still run’ as well. Oh and does your watch show cadence???

Enjoy playing with your HR monitor! Most people use it to avoid ‘junk miles’ so ideally 80% of your running should be zone 1 or 2 and 20% zone 4 – as a recipe for getting faster. But if you enjoy what you are doing already, why bother?
omg that beach shot is amazing… ethereal… WELLJELL of the muscle fossil! shit have we searched this week! Think i may have found something but so not sure, will photograph it when i get home!
