Easy 2-Miler

Back from an easy two mile run. I did a lot of reading last night about Maffetone-style training and I’m sold. I’ve dropped my heart rate alert down to 130-140 (180-my age.) I’m going to stay in that range for a while and see if I get any improvement. It will definitely be extremely slow, but if it works, it will be worth it.

Today’s May Workout Challenge:

  • 15 crunches
  • 15 reverse crunches
  • 12 ab twists
  • 15-second plank
  • 25 squats
  • 30-second plank
  • 30 Russian twists
  • 12 sit-ups (I’m substituting crunches because I want to work abs, not hip flexors.)

    Hey! Sorry I’ve been MIA from blog commenting. I need to subscribe to your blog by email–I’m ignoring Google Reader a lot lately because it’s going away.

    ANYWAY–thumb’s up on Run Less Run Faster. It’s a good program. Also thumb’s up on heart rate training. You will be frustrated at first, but then you will be amazed.

    Thanks! This heart rate stuff is going to take a while, but once I have seen some serious improvement, I will definitely add the quality workouts from Run Less, Run Faster.
