6 miles - 46 minutes.
Did 4 miles at MAF - 7:25, 7:34, 7:39, 7:44. Average HR for the entire 4 miles was 144.
Did a mile w/u with the 2nd half of that mile getting my HR up in the mid 140's so I could start the first mile at a 145 HR. From what I understand this test will be a measuring stick to show improvement over the same course at the same HR. I'm curious to see not only if I go faster, but have a decrease in difference for each mile. Running at 145 was a little difficult, I was very comfortable at 146/147. When I'd try to get back down to 145 I seemed to go down to 142/143. This will definately take a little practice. Maybe, since it's comfortable, I should just run at 146/147. Or, maybe this is just defeating the purpose of not going above 145...
