Pulled the old HR Monitor out of the closet today and took it around the blog in a fairly easy jog of 3km. Yesterday I ran 19 Km which is far short of a Marathon but I found it reasonably hard so today was an easier run,although I did finish reasonably hard.
I am not really sure how to interpret my HR results which were as follows per Km.
First Km 5.26 with Max HR 177 and Average HR 148. ( This involved a short sharp hill)
Second Km 4.59 Max 164 Average 140
Third Km 4.28 Max 144 Average 144
Back of knee a little sore at the start and quad still a bit sore. I am putting ice on after each run and heat on my leg during the day. I am massaging my hamstring with Voltarin before I run…I think that helps.
