Day #19

7 km easy night run

Recovery run fairly late in the evening. Nice and cold and quiet on the streets. Managed successfully to keep the heart rate under 140bpm, but it seemed that I had to constantly check my watch to make sure that I am running in the correct range. I don’t (yet) have a good to sense my effort compared to my actual heart rate. There are many variables like environment, stress, elevation changes, etc. that need to be factored in, but I believe over time it should get easier to estimate my effort to run at a specific heart rate. And, of course, the pace should get faster that the same heart rate.

In any case, it was a good uneventful run and I am for sure noticing an improvement in pace for these easy runs.
