Friday Recovery day.

am) 2 miles recovery jog- 16:00.
20:00 core lift
20:00 swim alternating 100 kick/ 100 drill/ 100 pull
40:00 dry sauna (this eliminates some heavy metals and causes vasodilation .. when I finally got out my HR was at 150- some people have theorized that this causes a response to blood volume and epo production similar to being at high altitude)

Thursday 17 miles.
am) 13 miles jogging at MAF.
pm) 4 miles jogging at low MAF.

Wednesday 14 miles.

am) 8 miles at MAF.. no watch.

N) Bike 1:00 at MAF. Single speeds rock!

pm) 6 miles 40:18 at MAF. 6:43 pace and my legs feel like they're coming back. I need to continue to be disciplined with my HR and effort- although I could have run more and much faster I need to look at my long term goals. Running hard so far out from my "A" race would only hurt my fitness and risk ruining my year.

On Friday you describe two runs: the first run at MAF; and the second run at low MAF. I was under the impression that MAF was a ceiling and not a range. If the latter, how would you go about calculating the range? Would you mind elaborating? Thanks.
