❤️❤️❤️ Post work, Friday night neighborhood hill running with my two favorites (sorry Maggie, next time!). 👶 Cadence yelled “whee, whee, whee” for most of the trip back, and then she had a little meltdown, so we all ran down the streets singing our ABC’s. 😂 Bike intervals this morning and a short 3.5 stroller miles this evening. ✔️I have a serious date with the foam roller tonight. 😘 #readyforthewknd #strollerrunning #thuleurbanglide #motherrunner #marathontraining #hilltraining #womensrunningcommunity #womenrunning #gobeyondpace #runyourworld #hshive

I started out this morning on the bike doing intervals. I’m still feeling a little wonky from the 10k on Tuesday and my 10 mile run yesterday, so I didn’t want to push anything. I wore the heart rate monitor, but I never reached nearly the right zones that I have designated for running. There are several articles corroborating this difference in heart rate, and really, I need to do a heart rate test on the bike if I want to learn my cycling zones. It’s not that important to me as long as I stick to perceived effort on the bike.

Jon and I ran after work as a second workout, and the hills make me so scared for what we are in for in San Francisco! I ran with the stroller and kept my heart rate between 140 and 150, but man, my legs still burned on those hills!  I haven’t gotten proper hill training during this cycle because I’ve tried to protect my shins with flatter running. I am doing a long run tomorrow, and then hopefully I can get in some strength work like this to help make me stronger for the hills!

Do you track different heart rate zones on the bike versus running? Or do you just go by perceived effort?
