Glad I could help. I also find this especially helpful on days like this morning, where I had a very long training day yesterday, swim and bike, then needed to get a long run in today. With the fatigue and being sore, having a couple of walk breaks in there for the first 3-4 miles of my run really helped to loosen me up and slowly get me back up to my usual pacing.
Hello to the Walk/Break Group,
Greetings and I hope your training is going well. After some kicking, biting, and scratching, I officially joined the run/walk group and have thoroughly enjoyed the benefits. It makes my runs so much more enjoyable!
However, I have a couple of questions, and I welcome any advice! I am doing Fink's plan, sort of a hybrid of the "Just Finish Swim" mixed in with the Intermediate Run/Walk. I do a nine minute run, one minute walk system. While running, I have noticed that beyond mile 3, I struggle to keep my heart rate in Zone-2 (from Zone-3), which most of the training calls for at this point (ninth week base training). Any advice on if that is okay or any advice or suggestions on how to put me back in z-2? I dont think I can run any slower as the turtles are passing me!
All the best,
BTW- I am also posting this in other groups.
Let me know what you find out, I too am trying to do HR training and am having a hard time staying in zone 2. I also feel like a turtle. In fact some of the speed walkers in our group pass me very easily out on the trail...
Did you get to try your 4/1 plan? If so, how did it go?
All the best,
I never heard from you on the 4/1 that you were going to try in the half. How did it go? I am very curious as I may use this at times during my events! Hope you are doing well,
