later the same day ............

What a beautiful day (sorry you guys cooped in offices and hospitals)after my earlier gym session I couldn't not go out for a run - blue sky and sunshine with some wind.

Started out up the road, HR all over the place - needing to walk to get it down to 75% - legs obviously still recovering from this morning session. Decided it was too good to just go up the main road, so deviated into the park. Ok for a while - grass to run on - lovely, but then hit the hills - well I reckon I've walked more than I've run this afternoon, and it certainly was not a steady aerobic run, but it was invigorating.

Just worked out pace - must get a garmin - I've had to guess the distance from the map, and as I wasn't running on marked paths its all a bit iffy - but something like 15 minute miles!!!

And crossed at least 6 contour lines on the way up!!

where: park
how far: 4.3 km 2.6 miles
time: 41:25
pace: 15.4 minute miles
AHR: 139
core: gym - legs and upper body

tomorrow: road run

Got to admire (envy) your motivation - 2 bits of exercise in one day! Well done - but don't over do it.
