I noticed something out of the ordinary when I was looking at my stats for the marathon. Normally my heart rate is very steady and looks like this: Pretty even and like a plateau…
Mercer Island half
12 mile training run
8 mile run with Tall Mom
So tell me, what is up with this!?!! Check out my heart rate from the marathon?
It is all over the place.
I can think of a couple things that could have caused this 1) I took 800 mg of Ibuprofen before the race to help my hip along and to ward off any pain 2) I took Claritin because of my sun allergy before the race too 3) dehydration 4) um, that’s all I got. So anyone have any insight as to heart rates and what causes them to be so crazy?
And what is next on my agenda? I am thinking Tacoma City Half Marathon this weekend!!! I’ll see how the weather goes and decide by Friday!! I’m thinking a new PR? Maybe!! 1:55 could be doable! Or maybe i should just do a nice and easy run. I’m feeling really really good. My feet are good. My hamstrings are a tiny bit tight (probably due to the flat course and absence of hills to give different muscles a chance to work). But the sorest part of my body is my shoulders! I tend to tense up my shoulders when I run and I tried to keep them loose but apparently I didn’t do a very good job.
And for those of you who asked about my sister i added to my Recap HERE. So check it out! She did amazing!!
Off to enjoy my last day in OKC before heading back home!!!
