Looking at (some) of my numbers from this round of getting back into running –
- This does not take into account exhaustion (time of day) or heat
- The graph does not take into account distance – in general, over longer distances, your body can do less for a given HR.
Most of the numbers are in about the same line – the green line (which is data between 7/2 and 7/19).
You can see me actually being worse than the blue line (which is data from 6/3 – 6/10).
However, notice that once I got serious and did a “long run” at low HR (the 125 HR on 7/19 which ended up at 90 minutes), my next performance jumped to the north significantly. This is what HR training (LONG and slow, 50% between L1 and L2) can do for you.
Or, maybe I’m full of falafel and the next piece of data I get will be completely different.
This is kinda fun. I wonder if I could convert this into a 3D sculpture of sort.
