Today’s run was interesting to say the least. Before heading out I checked my heart rate variability as well as resting heart rate – all in check. I am a bit wary right now, as I am fitter than ever and trying to balance my running just below the line of over training. I think that is why I’m improving more than before, it also makes me more risk aware. Anyhow … all was looking OK and I headed out doing my usual warm-up walking up the hill. I started my run and all was good until I arrived at the park and my watch showed an HR of 165! I slowed down to a walk and it didn’t really change. Alarm bells went on. I thought I just do a walk in the park then and worried about having done too much as I realized, slowly jogging that my HR went to over 190. At this point I knew my watch must be malfunctioning. Just to make sure I took my pulse like a normal person and surely it below 90! After 36 minutes my watch played along again, but by that time I had already ran back across the hill and towards the sea. Blairwitch beach run up anyone?



All in all I only did 55 minutes today, as I want to have enough in the tank for Saturday’s long run. Now I’m off to update the software on my watch …

  2. Thats weird – I havent used my watch last 2 runs as it hasnt been picking up gps. We have a glitch in the matrix! How long you planning on running on sat? I’ve been slack lately, lack o mojo I think


    1. Did you update the firmware might help with the mojo lol!
      Saturday will be at least 2 hours and 12 minutes, but maybe I can get myself to carry fuel and it will be longer. Not much of a long run, but it’s ‘my’ longest in the week.


      1. I have a belt, but can’t put water in there. I am happy with the bottle it even has a pocket for food. I just don’t take it with me. I have a camelback plus bladder but hate drinking from it *g*
