"Thank you Rachel. That helps! I have Eric's book and have been doing the exercises, but then got distracted with another book that talked about the Maffetone Method. I was super intrigued. I don't want to give up on it, but I think I will…"

"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…"

"Hi Beth, One thing I have been noticing is that my heart rate monitor (optical on watch (Garmin 935) and Garmin HRM strap) is that it sometimes shows high readings at the start of a run. This is in the cold/high humidity.  It locks onto cadence…"
