Day #23

8 km late afternoon run

I had a day off from work, so I decided to take advantage of the day light and ran at dusk so I can actually see where I am going. Again, it took a while to get my heart rate up and get my engine going, but after 3 kms I found my rhythm and started keeping up a good pace. The overall average pace of 5:24 min/km was the fastest in this season. It was hard work, but it felt good to get the turnover in my feet. Also, my running cadence is starting to get the level I want it. Ideally, I would like to get up to 180 steps per min. This run I averaged 177, so I am nearly there. The pace also felt fast, although objectively I know that this actually not a really fast pace – but I am getting there…
