Heart Monitor Training - 2 Month Update

I have finished 2 months of the heart monitor training plan.  Here are the stats.

Week 1 Paces:
3 Mile Easy Run - 15:02 minute mile
1 Mile Hard Run - 11:13 minute mile

Week 4 Paces:
3 Mile Easy Run - 13:48 minute mile
Hard Run Intervals - 14:46 minute mile

Week 8 Paces:
5 Mile Easy Run - 12:40 minute mile
3 Mile Hard Run - 11:00 minute mile

So what do we see?  Progress.  Yes, progress.  I have been disappointed in my times, but when I look at the progress I have made, I am slightly encouraged.  I have one more month before I complete this plan.  Remember how I said I will be disappointed unless my slow run pace drops down to 10:00 minute mile?  Well I did, and I will most likely be disappointed since I am not even allowed to go that fast for my fast runs.  Heart rate...there is still time for a miracle!  For month 3, I continue with 6 days a week of running, but we step it up to 2 hard runs a week.  Exciting.
