Sunday Stroll


I dropped back and kept a sharp eye on my heart rate this Sunday. Mindful of Coach Jeff Galloways's last few e-mail notes about my overtraining, I kept it very light.

Average heart rate was a little under 60% for two and a half hours. And I am sleeping better as a result of backing off a bit and NOT trying to get rid of all my frustrations during my training runs for the Boston Marathon.

If you have a Polar Heart Rate Monitor, especialy one as good as the S625X, it sorts behooves ya to pay attention to it.

Now I see there is a new Polar HRM that monitors cadence and stride length!!!! Posted by Picasa

My name is Robert Key and I am a runner from Houston, Texas. I saw your blog listed when I was looking through the RBF directory and very much enjoyed reading some of your entries. As a person that ran 8 marathons and trained thousands of miles before I finally qualified for my first Boston Marathon at the age of 40 in 2000, I understand your drive for this quest.

I have a web site at http://www.faithfulsoles.com that is inspirational stories for walkers, runners and athletes of all ages and abilities (be sure to read "The Greatest Marathoner" found on the home page under "A message from Robert..." about an experience I had at the 2000 Boston Marathon). A new feature I have recently added to the site is a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database where members of my site can find a blog of interest to them based on other walkers, runners or athletes of similar abilities, goals and interests. To my knowledge it is the only one of its kind specifically for walkers and runners on the internet. I would appreciate it if you would take a moment to put a link to your blog in our Running Blog Database. Just click on "Link your running blog" under "Free Features" from the home page. If you want to learn more about my running background, just click on "Meet Robert" from the main menu , or to learn more about my involvement in the running community, click on "Faithful Soles in the news" in the left column under "Weekly Features". I also have a blog that I just started at http://faithfulsoles.blogspot.com, but most of my running information is on my web site. Also, if there is anyone else in your blogger network that you think would be interested in listing their blog, please feel free to pass this information along to them. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.
