    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for confirming what I thought should be the case. The abstract of your reference makes a very clear statement.

    Strange though that Jeff Galloway makes his very counterintuitive statement for many years.

    Best regards,

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for your answer. Just to be sure, I will resume running on Sep 27 and have the HM race on Nov 7. My thought was to use the Level 1 Half-Marathon Plan during this period. Where does the Starting Out/Starting Over plan fit in?

    Best regards,
    Oliver

    Hi David,

    Thank you so much for what sounds like an excellent plan to me. I will follow it and let you know next year how it turned out.

    Best regards,
    Oliver

    Hi David,

    Thanks again for your helpful answer. On Friday I received my Stryd, on Saturday I did the 3/6 lap test, on Sunday I rested, and today I did my first power zone run. In the hilly terrain where I live it is not easy to stay in one zone, as power changes instantaneously – but I guess I will get used to it 😉

    Best regards,
    Oliver

    David,

    Is your “in general, yes” the answer to my first question: “Do you expect that I have the same power output and pace in the morning and in the afternoon considering the quite different heart rates?” or my second question: “Let’s assume I run with the same power but am considerably slower in the morning than in the afternoon. Would it be better for the training effect to switch to afternoon training?”

    BTW, I am not reluctant at all. Otherwise I would not have bought an expensive Stryd. I just want to get the best possible benefit out of my workouts.

    Best regards,
    Oliver

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your comprehensive answer. I also asked the same question in the FB group. Most runners who answered have the same experience as I have, some the opposite. I realise that heart rate depends on many factors and decided to invest in a Stryd power meter.

    However, do you expect that I have the same power output and pace in the morning and in the afternoon considering the quite different heart rates? Let’s assume I run with the same power but am considerably slower in the morning than in the afternoon. Would it be better for the training effect to switch to afternoon training?

    Best regards,
    Oliver

    Hi Paddy,

    Hydration (or the lack of it) might certainly have an effect. Although I drink half a litre of water before my morning runs that is likely not enough to compensate for the night’s loss of water.

    Best regards,
    Oliver
