Was supposed to be a 2 hour run per my training plan, but I knew there was no way I could get in that long of a run due to time constraints. Did just under 45 minutes and felt really good. Finished pretty hard, but could easily have gone much further. Cadence is still a little slow, but think it will come up as I get faster. Once I am down below 8 min/mi. I think my cadence will be at a better 170-180 rpm. Average HR still continues to look better and max only got up to 177 despite pushing very hard at the end. Checked average max HR for workouts on TrainingPeaks and mine is definitely coming down. Chart from September to now proves that out; showing a drop in max HR of 7-10 bpm depending on the distance between the comparison of date ranges. Basically, I am running max HR's in the 180's now vs. my previous 190's for shorter distances. Longer distances come down below that and the progress is slower as I think would be expected. So, as worried as I was that my training HR's were so high, I really should be happy as I am making progress aerobically and should expect them to be closer to normal ranges some time in the next year. Will keep an eye on this as time goes on as this is a great graph to keep an eye on for the newer athletes.
