LONG RUN: PROGRESSION

I met Dave, Ben, Albert, Matt, and Denver at the pond at 5:00 am. Denver and Matt went East on parkway for a tempo, the rest of us went out West for a progressive long run. Albert dropped a bomb on us that he was moving and this was his last day running with us. We'll miss him, he's a great runner and friend. He's moving to SLC so those of you down there, get him out running with you!

I wore my heart rate monitor on the run so I'll post my splits for each mile of the progression with heart rate in parentheses for each mile. We did progression thru 15, then 2.5 cool down in perfect temps, although it was humid by Utah standards.

Splits: 7:45 (109) 7:29 (116) 7:19 (119) 6:57 (124) 6:45 (127) 6:44 (132) 6:29 (132) 6:18 (142) 6:07 (146) 5:56 (157) 5:46 (159) 5:38 (167) 5:30 (172) 5:19 (179) 5:08 (181)

That is one efficient ticker. I think I'd have to walk to get anything under 125.

Looks like you are getting back down to fighting weight too.
