Still running about 5-7 miles a day and slowly improving with the lower HR stuff. It's somewhat monotonous.  I am weight training 3 times a week and don't monitor my HR on those days so I'm wondering if that affects aerobic improvement too. Anyway, I plan on sticking with it for another week and if no significant change, I'll return to my normal plan of MWF with the group and a tempo or speed day on one of the other days. Running slow and alone is not much fun.

Wanted to share this with the blog. May have already been mentioned but it's a fun read.

Wow! Thanks for that tip. Just read the preview on Amazon. Sounds really good.

Rob, if you sign up for Kindle Unlimited, you get a free month then it's $10 a month after if you choose to keep it. You can read the book and cancel in the first month for free.

Welcome back. It'll be fun for you to pick up the pace again.

Hey. Great to see you again! Was not sure what was up. Was going to ask Jake. Was hoping all good with you and family. Glad to see you are still running. Talk to you soon.

Looks like a good book. I've been looking for a running book to pick up.
