First anything to write about in a LONG time - First week back to running since July and it feels so good. HR is wayyy to high, but if I hold out I'm sure it will some back down with time. Not up for any speed work yet and possibly for a long time...

M: 6.3@ 8:19 (outside)
T: off
W: 8@7:30 (treadmill)
R: 6@8:30 (treadmill), 4@8:30 (treadmill)
F: 10.6@7:47 (outside)
Sa: 6@8:30 (treadmill)
Su: 9.5@8:30 (treadmill)

Thanks Julie, Mark and Michele. HR test was inconclusive. I have been doing the daily check of wake-up HR, 20, 90 and 120 seconds and that seems to be doing better. But the 5 mile test still showed way too high a heart rate. I'll have to go back to the doc soon for a follow-up, we'll see what he says. This is very frustrating and looks like it will cause me to miss Boston. I'm sort of amazed at how much free time I have though!

Don't count Boston out just yet as you may wish to come and run for fun. You have plenty of time for that.

What is HR test? Heart Rate? How does it work if it is not privacy?

Boston 2013 is overrated. 2014, Jerry might be there. lol!

Jerry, I am not nearly as scientific as Mark B is with HR monitoring. I am just doing two things:

1) Rusko heart test - http://www.ilog.ca/help/Rusko_Heart_Rate_Test.htm

This is supposed to be a good check on if you are overtraining, or need to rest somewhat. You take your pulse when waking up (after lying there 10 minutes), and then stand up after 20 seconds and check again, then check at +90 seconds and +120 seconds. You can see the graph in the link as to what the lines might represent.

2) For a number of years, I have done easy 5-6 mile runs where my HR was about 120-125 max (I did not track these religiously but have some records). After the CHicago marathon, I noticed my HR for these runs was 140-148 - very high for an easy run. So once a week , I'm trying to do a simple repeatable test (treadmill, same speed, same incline, same time, etc.) to compare the HR. THis helps me to know if my HR is stabilizing. Of course, without being able to train now, my HR will rise gradually as its training leaves it.

Geez, I thought you had some heart problem that proves marathoning kills us.

Come on, just be lazy and drink up, 6 months, you will bounce back.

And, can I borrow your Boston bib then? lol!

Interesting test, John. Absent a record of MAF tests (their real value is tracking the change over time, up or down), I could see how this sort of system could help.

I wouldn't worry about losing fitness right now. It seems that you're overtrained, and while scaling way back will be a bitter pill to swallow, it's what you need to reset your system and rebuild.

I think the Maffetone book talks about a blood test for something (cortisol?) that can be a marker for overtraining, though it's not always conclusive. You might want to look that section up and ask your doctor about it when you see him next time.

Oh, I hesitate to ask this, but when was the last time you had a stress EKG? I don't know if heart disease runs in your family, but with a marked drop in performance... it's a possibility that one shouldn't ignore. I've seen some very healthy, fit people end up with coronary artery disease.

Mark, as you mention, since I don't have a record of MAF tests, I figured the best option I have is a near regular weekly run of 5-7 miles in a recovery/easy day. So I'm using that for now. Funny you mention the blood tests. I found a place online where I can order my own blood tests, so I ordered the comprehensive iron test, to see where I am at. I will see if they have the cortisol test. THis way, I don't need doc appts.

And, I have definitely thought of a heart issue. I'm giving this a little more time and analysis before I go see a heart doctor. I have no family history of this .
