No prob G-dawg. I'm amazed that Huck stuck with it and has seen good results. I was thinking about the Maffetone method this afternoon as I was spinning away in my shed. I have used it to some degree over the years, but I never really knew what I was doing until I stumbled across it at one the barefoot running sites I frequent.
One issue I can't seem to resolve is my number: 180-44=136. Do I subtract 10 for the rare kidney disease I have had since birth (and the Triamterene/HCTZ & Potassium Chloride I take)? Do I add back some for the consistent training (5+ days/week)?
There is the issue of tracking the target number when I run - I don't bother. Since I hate to wear a HRM, I go by feel. It is easy for me to run sub-8 miles in my target range, so I'm not concerned about tracking.
