OK, I have been fairly carefully following Aerobic (Low HeartRate) Training for 4+weeks now. The articles say it takes at least 4 weeks to see initial results, and often 6-8 weeks.
Aerobic (Low HeartRate) Training is supposed to reduce my effort (my HeartRate at any particular speed) and increase my endurance (ability to increase speed and/or distance). Has it started to visibly work?
Start: 03-May-2010. 4mile run at constant pace:
Current: 31-May-2010 (4 weeks later) 4 mile run at constant pace:
Result: I am now running at a constant 0.2mph faster (30sec/mile faster) at a 3 bpm lower average HeartRate (6 bpm lower max HeartRate at the end). Not bad for 4 weeks, we will see what the next month produces.
