Day #11

6km afternoon run

Last run of the month… And I made a short experiment. I forced myself to average my heart rate to no higher than 140bpm. This meant I needed to walk twice on the way back as I was not able to run so slow to hit that target. This is a really good measure of fitness (which is very low 🙁 The average pace for these 6km was 7:15min/km. I hope that over the next few months I will be able to drastically lower that pace for easy runs.

I enjoyed running in the rain today. Much less people on the trail. In sunshine it would have been packed. And as I was running so slow, I hardly felt any effort for this run. Tomorrow I want to go 12km, so it is good I went for easy one today.
