I am getting exciting about RUNNING September 6, 2011Posted by gogirlcindy in Marathon Training, Reminders, Training Tips.
Good afternoon. We’ll be running and walking at Elk Park on Thursday…and I am getting exciting about RUNNING.
To share my enthusiasm, here is some food for thought.
1) Why do runners care about their Resting Heart Rate? In search of a runner’s journal last week I noticed that several of the journals had a place to track your RHR, so I went on a mission to find out why runners care. Here’s a couple of good articles on the subject:
Turns out it is a good people of information – especially for long-distance runners. I have a heart rate monitor, so I’ll be breaking mine out this week to start learning more about what my heart rate means about my running and training.
I started a discussion on our message board for this, if you have any thoughts, questions or input on this topic, put them here.
2) What about an online journal? I’ve used a couple of different applications for tracking my runs and my routes, but MapMyRun allows me to have “friends” — so we can share routes and training. There is a Blackberry app that I can use while a run and then I can log runs and other activity online. Pretty nice, check it out. Let us know if you use something else or what you think of MapMyRun.
Have a great day everyone and hope to see you on a run this week!
