"Sounds familiar Beth!  I bought three books recently:  Eric's book, Jeff Galloway's Running Until You're 100 and Daniel's Running Formula.  Plus I heard about the Maffetone Method on a YouTube somewhere so also…"

"I spent about six months doing essentially the MAF method. I've definitely gotten fitter, however it seemed like I was making very slow progress and I got frustrated frequently as a result. I did get faster, although I was never really able to…"

"I'm getting frustrated. I've been trying to keep under 133 beats per minute to try to train my body to burn fat like the Maffetone Method. On week 2 and following a sugar free diet while increasing protein and no processed foods. I can run…"

"Polar H10 is a really good strap and monitor.  I use the same one. Are you using electrode gel?  Or just water to moisten the pads?  I usually get really high heart rate measurements at the beginning of my run when the air is really…"

Heart rate

I just bought a heart rate monitor to try to keep my heart rate in zones 1-3. I can't run more that 1/8 of a mile before it's getting high. Any suggestions? I've been running 10-15 miles per week for years. I cut out all refined and processed foods and sugar.
