Life is like music; it must be composed by ear, feeling, and instinct, not by rule.

a little HR testing time this Wednesday . . .

Several folks have asked about my heart rate and since I don't run with gadgets like HRMs, I decided to strap one on for a short easy run today. I averaged a 6:50 pace during a 30 min. run and my average heart rate was 118. I know that's low as I'm 42 yrs. old, however, I've always had a low heart rate which is likely genetic as it runs in my family. My resting heart rate will drop around 50.

I'm continuing to treat this week as a recovery run week limiting my running to around 30 minutes per day.
