True to my goal, last night I got in a second run on the treadmill in as many nights. And as expected, my back feels a little better still. A little at a time and I will get back to where I want to be. With two little boys and lots going on at work, I am definitely tired at the end of the day, but glad I am finding the will power to keep moving.

Below is the graph from the Garmin Training Center software that works with my Forerunner 305. I just think this is so cool and helpful to track improvements in my running. What it is shows is speed and pace (in two blues) – I ran at 6.2 for 19 minutes and 6.5 for the last minute. I am not sure what cause the bumps other than I probably periodically change my stride length during the run. Also, in orange, you can see my cadence – about 80 steps per minute as well as my heart rate which is in red. I think this is the one I have to focus on getting better. It starts at 160 when I get up to speed and then gradually and consistently goes up until the end where it finishes at 175.

By no means is this my max heart rate, but I know 175 is a place where I start to feel the effort level getting high. I will be fun to watch this graph change over the coming months.
Thanks again to the in-laws for a great Christmas present!
