That’s actually an amazing result for 3 months of work. Congrats!
Just curious: what’s your MAF HR?
Did this back in December. Held 146 avg HR. Avg pace was 10:28. Slight positive Pa:Hr at that time, and the run felt super easy.
Today, same avg HR. Avg pace was 9:19. Negative Pa:Hr. The run felt harder, probably because it was faster and I’m carrying a bit of fatigue in my legs. It’s surprising how such a tiny amount of grade can make a material difference in pace. Slight uphill going out; downhill coming back.
Test is mile 1.50 to 7.50.
I think this is progress!
