Ewen's Running Diary - 2022

This page is my running diary for 2022. Clicking here will scroll this page to the current week.

My running goal for 2022 - Race 5k faster than 26 minutes.

Goal: Finish a 5k race in less than 26 minutes.

Races: Results will be here at the end of the year.

Numbers: Stats for the year will be here.

Other words: A few words about how the year went will be here.

[V] - The Verheul Method of interval training.
[M] - MAF heart-rate run (below 130 for me).
[H] - Above MAF heart-rate or a tempo run etc.
[B] - Race or hard interval session etc.
RS - "RS scale" (heart beats per kilometre). Ave pace per kilometre * Average HR. A low value on a particular course indicates good aerobic fitness.
AHR - Average heart-rate during a run or interval.
MHR - Maximum heart-rate for a particular run or interval.
My maximum heart-rate is about 157. The highest I recorded in 2021 were at the end of three races: 155, 156 and 157. Height 186cm.
