Goooooood morning BT!

I have an hour long trail run this morning but I'm waiting a bit for the wind to settle down and the day to heat up.  I figure if i'm doing 3 back to back trail runs in Vegas in July I might as well get used to running in the heat! Lol!

Robert--you might want to check out the Maffetone method--you seem to be in a perfect place to start.  I will warn you it is a slow way to start--kind of have to check the ego at the door to keep that heart rate at 180-age.  For me that's 133.  I have to run very slowly, especially uphill, to keep my heart rate in that range.  However, I'm improving every week--my pace is getting faster while still keeping my heart rate between 133-138.   Hey by the way, where in Missouri are you?  My daughter has been recruited by Missouri Valley College in Marshall for softball--we'll be heading to Missouri in August!  When we went to her signing back in November we went to a Chief's game--what a blast!  I can't wait to go again.

Good training going on guys!  

Have a great day out there!

5 mile run this morning in the heavy humidity. Need to tweak my new watch. This thing has about a million settings, and quite overwhelming.

Enjoy the weekend BT group!

Six mile run in some warm temps this morning -- waited too long to get out there and cooked.  At least we aren't to triple digits yet, that's in a few days.  I'm hoping to up my run volume a bit from recent lows, see if I can get to 6x weekly runs in a month or so and have some consistency for a while.

Looks like we all had similar workouts today. I did 6 miles with a twist. I tried to do better with heat and dehydration by running with my mouth closed the whole time. I had no idea if I could do it, but it had surprisingly good results. I was able to keep my breathing controlled and rhythmical, and I never felt too hot even though it was the middle of the day in Texas in June. I did still drink from my hydration vest and kept a little water in my mouth. There's no way I could keep that up during anything more strenuous than a long slow distance pace, but it was an interesting experiment. Happy Saturday!

No triple digits here in Oregon---it got above 70 today for the first time since I got home on Monday!

AM: Cool 40 minute run in the hills behind the house.

PM: First OWS (well, first one here) of the season in Cottage Grove Lake. Not sure exactly what water temp was (it was 71 about six inches from shore, but I was swimming maybe 50 yards out--maybe 67-68?) but it felt a bit warmer than Calgary last year (66?) and was fine in full wetsuit. 45 minutes of swimming with beautiful mountain backdrop--think I have posted pics of that lake before but maybe will do another if it will work from Dad's computer....

70min run in 90*+ heat...it was brutal. But I did get to cool off in the pool afterwards doing 20min easy swimming with my kids. All in all, a pretty great day!

You don't know the half of it. Cardio #2 today was 2 hours at the roller skating rink with my friends, and I'm a grown a$$ man.

Short 8 mile bike ride in the heat.

Thank you for the information, I'll check it out!

We live just outside KC in Independence, just 5 miles from Arrowhead stadium. Hence my screen name. ??

Good morning a day late!

I was up early yesterday for prison ministry. I ended up doing Sunday's run on Saturday night, so I could get Saturday's missed ride on Sunday. In retrospect, I should have taken the day off, and just pushed everything back a day.

19:30 - 40' easy run, followed by 20' at 10k goal pace. Let's say that I had to make a pit stop at the end of the 40' for biological reasons. The 20' kicked my butt. It was pretty dang hot, even though it was after 8:00, and I was already tired. The pit stop probably didn't help.

Had a long day, work day at church followed by the LSU/FSU baseball game, but... got in a ride before midnight, so it counts for Saturday's workout.
