no need to rush towards a new heart rate monitor currently, if you had one then you could have posted your heart rate data

the talk test always works well as a gauge of the easy run .. if you can't talk you running too quickly on your easy runs

we should learn more about you as the feedback piles up

May try and get my hands on one anyway, as have some Amazon vouchers expiring soon and they're not getting used

I may not get out for a run at all tomorrow - is it okay to swap the Rest session from Friday to tomorrow, and then tomorrows session to Friday?

Date - Distance - Time (Pace)
Thursday 15th - 4.87 miles - 35:31 (7:17/mile)
Friday 16th - 4.21 miles - 30:46 (7.18/mile)
Saturday 17th - 4.8 miles - 36:16 (7:31/mile)
Sunday 18th - Rest
Monday 19th - 5.22 miles - 40:08 (7:41/mile)
Tuesday 20th - 4.0 miles - 31:03 (7:45/mile)
Wednesday 21st - 5.3 miles - 40:02 (7:31/mile)

good stuff .. do let me know which choice you make for a heart rate monitor

swapping sessions around in this instance is OK as they are easy sessions

enjoy

Was thinking of something simple, and have heard that Polar monitors are quite good and the reviews look quite strong, so am currently thinking something like the Polar FT1.

Am guessing the only real features I need are for it to be able to record accurately, and to give an average heart rate across a workout (or per set in a workout)?

Thank you - hoping to get out tomorrow evening, but may be a bit tight so good to know I can switch as a fall-back!

maybe also consider looking at a heart rate monitor with GPS

then you are able to measure your distance as well

there a number of decent well priced dual heart rate monitors and gps watches out there

Just a quick update into how this is coming along:

Date - Distance - Time (Pace)
Thursday 15th - 4.87 miles - 35:31 (7:17/mile)
Friday 16th - 4.21 miles - 30:46 (7.18/mile)
Saturday 17th - 4.8 miles - 36:16 (7:31/mile)
Sunday 18th - Rest
Monday 19th - 5.22 miles - 40:08 (7:41/mile)
Tuesday 20th - 4.0 miles - 31:03 (7:45/mile)
Wednesday 21st - 5.3 miles - 40:02 (7:31/mile)
Thursday 22nd - 5.96 miles - 45:33 (7:39/mile)
Friday 23rd - Rest
Saturday 24th - 6.53 miles - 50:04 (7:39/mile)

This means I should be running the last day of the 'off-training' schedule on Wednesday 28th November. If I then move on to the 'build-up' schedule, I have noticed that this means I have a 'rest' day scheduled on Sunday 2nd December, but a run on Saturday 1st (when I have a long road trip during the day). Is there any way I can swap these two sessions around, or do I have to be more rigid with the build up schedule?
