Good Job! I've been doing hill climbs 3x a week with a heart rate averaging at 164 for 45 minutes.
I shoot a bow.
It's a pretty camo one.
I shoot a black one at targets,
and I heart Eric.

I have never done one mile intervals so I am not sure of what the goal is. I am a distance runner and I have been ramping up my pace for a boston qualifier so I was at 7 min miles. Just had knee surgery though so I'm out for a while. As soon as I am healed up its back to training but I have a 50 mile ultra in my sights this time.

That's impressive Eric (both of you). The average mile pace is about 8:30 so I would say you are doing some work! I'm a distance runner as well. I've ran several marathons but haven't even given a 50 mile race a thought. I'll keep my distance at 26.2 for now. That will be impressive and I'm hoping you recover quickly with your surgery. Which Ultra are you looking at running?

I hope it heals up well Eric. Im not sure if I could do 50 miles....big mental game.
I think your watch is broke brother... no way your running 7 min miles in that altitude, i want to see a video... im calling "shenanigans"... Bang Biscuit!!!
LOL.....Im going to be doing mid 6's by next month. Im gonna own you in the Elk woods this year!
Hmm, you might be able to outrun Nate, but with that bodybuilder workout he'll be able to throw that elk over his shoulder and haul it out all by himelf!

I ran a 4:19 mile in college......but that was 6 years ago and I don't think I'll be seeing that time again. My focus now is just distance and hill intervals. It seems hard to track meaningful splits on trail runs with a lot of climbing. Anyone have any tricks for tracking pace on runs with a lot of intense climbing?
Mile intervals are rough but great physical tests that you can measure yourself on. I ran my first 40 miler a few months ago and loved it. It wasnt a race, just did it with my dad and ran from out house to the coast through on trails. Great mental and physical test for hunting the mountains. Good luck to anyone hitting the hills saturday for California Blacktails!
Nicely done! I'd love to get up to those distances someday. Blacktails already? Why such an early season?
California A zone opens up july 14th! earliest season in the country and Im stuck accros the country for a few more weeks while my dad sits in my stand!!
I know the feeling.....I'm going to be stuck in a conference room on the east coast during the co archery opener....which is easily the last place on earth I'd like to be that week.
Man thats brutal!
HuntLightHuntFast where about are you going to be on the East Coast?
Just east of Pittsburg somewhere on a business trip......I spend all year training here in CO at altitude and then right before it counts I have to spend two weeks at sea level sitting in a conference room.
P.S. Winded Bowhunter; I'm a big fan of your shop. It's not often I see all the brands I respect and use available in one place. If you're ever looking for a gear tester, and/or a backcountry hunt in CO hit me up. I'd be happy to help you out.
i second that ^
HuntLightHuntFast, Pittsburgh is a bit too far, if you were in the DC I would offer to meetup! Thank you for the kind words about the store. We primarily sell brands that I personally have been using for several years with no complaints!
