Holding back

Holding back is different than holding in. I ran for an hour today, trying to keep myself at a low HR (< 150) with a high leg turnover. It’s not easy. First, when you’re conscious of your turnover and trying to figure out if it’s too low, you just raise your heart rate trying to pick up the turnover. In any case, it was a good run cause I didn’t feel like I was exerting myself and went for an hour, but then again, I didn’t feel like I was exerting myself. Oh well, I succeeded both goals, even if I ran very slowly.

As for holding everything else in, I think the fact that I write here what I write… well. shit. I’m holding it in.
