Day #37

6 km easy afternoon run

Nice and easy with Lily. I was a little surprised at first on how slow I was going. I thought I could easily do sub 6:00 min/km for easy runs by now. But then I remembered that the previous evening I ran close to 5:00 min/km. My body was telling me that it needs to recover and I cannot just put that run away. This is a very positive thing and re-affirms the need to use a HRM for the easy runs to control the actual (objective) effort of the run.

Lily did very well today and trotted nicely beside me for almost the whole way. There were only 2 moments where she got a little excited / mad, but in both cases it was very short and halfhearted.
