I'm just about half way through the Maffetone book but I thought I'd go ahead and do a pre test.
And since I am in essence starting over. I thought a weigh in was in order as well…
I did the test on a treadmill at the Y @ a 1% incline. I figured this would allow me to have constant test conditions even when it's 95F outside next summer.
Warm-up 10 minutes
Mile 1: 8:38 (132 BPM)
Mile 2: 8:46 (135 BPM)
Mile 3: 9:03 (135 BPM)
Mile 4: 8:54 (136 BPM)
Mile 5 9:00 (135 BPM)
Cool down 10 minutes
I guess I'll do this test every 2 weeks as I begin to implement my new training strategies…
