    Hi Flo

    I’m about to start MAF training (ordered the HRM today) having never done anything like it before. I’m in my late 40s, have run 5 or 6 marathons before with the most recent best time being 3:28. I’m curious as to how I’ll respond to MAF training (or low heart rate training in general) because all my marathons have been done without any base really. I maybe run 5k a week each week then when I decide to do a marathon I would start the plan and immediately jump up the milage. For example my weekly milage at the highest point of the plan (that got me the 3:28) was 30 miles. I have never been injured despite these spikes in milage and my age, so I’m hopeful I get decent results from MAF but honestly I don’t know if the physiology that allows me to train without a base will be a benefit or not.

    Anyway, I’ll soon find out.
