Day #22

7 km late night run

Easy run fairly late in the evening. It was a nice evening and my “recovery” run from the previous night’s hills run felt good. The main issue was really that I couldn’t get my heart rate up to 140bpm within the first 3 kms. I take this as I good sign and that my body is now better trained – at least on the cardiovascular level. Subjectively, I felt that I had to work hard to get my heart rate which on a different level kind of defeats the purpose of an easy run. In any case, it felt a tad too much like work for my liking. I may need to adjust my easy running heart rate zone. I guess it could also mean that my maximum heart rate is slowly decreasing thus moving my 140bpm to a higher percentage range. I need to keep on eye on my numbers and see if adjustments are in order.
