I have some preliminary conclusions:

• I was never that great at HR. I haven't gotten significantly worse, but 2008 was especially bad.
• z-man wasn't that good at HR before, but really kicked it up a notch circa 2008
• Winning times at HR, assuming a top field, should be in the low 7s. Pace is largely invariant over length, control density (style), climb, and season (although the X variables don't express enough variation to really test the latter factors, or any factors, really.)
• I have been in the 7s twice, and won on those occasions. They were longer courses.
• More data is required and this analysis is more art than science.

Data is here:


It looks like there is some good CSU orienteering training tomorrow. It is really unfortunate that it is on the same night as the track workout, which is where I am focusing.

Run 1:00:00 intensity: (48:00 @2) + (10:30 @3) + (1:30 @4)
shoes: 9 2007 Saucony

Level 8 hills. 7mph through 48, and then to tempo (2 minutes earlier than last time.)

10mph at 56, 10.5mph at 58:30, and 11mph at 59:30.

Felt ridiculously good. Let's see about tomorrow.

1,034 calories.

Mini core afterwards.
